What If

What if we opened our eyes to the magic of Nature?

What if we witnessed how she breathes in and out?

What if we fell in love with every stone and creature

Feeling their pulse within and without?

What if we listened to the pause in between?

What if we dared to follow the Queen

Dancing and weaving and flying free

To bring home the seed of what could be?

What if this chaos is not the end?

But a sacred dream

To make us whole again.

This poem was inspired by a talk by Rob Hopkins, an environmental activist from Totness, UK, who wrote a book called “From What Is to What if” about collective imagination.

It is if you will both preamble and conclusion of my first ever song “The Queen”, release on 21 June 2021 in celebration of the Summer Solstice.
