A FAR-OFF SINGING

“…Consciousness projects itself

Like a headland into the seas.

Headlands acquire sea atmosphere;

headlands are poised in the sound of waves,

headlands extend

in long dreaming lines of shore.

From the unknown

from the immense and infinite,

weaving into consciousness

like long fingers of fog

through coastal canyons,

comes a far-off singing.”

Words of the Earth, by Cedric Wright ©1960
