Secret Summoning





Maybe sometimes the Creator makes waves to roll our attention in the right direction. Or is it simply because the swells delight Him?

Secret Summoning
A terzanelle of call to tell

A secret sort of summoning,
It rocks me from my tired trail.
A secret sort of summoning,
It’s nature’s calling, all-out wail.
As sand greets water, so I lean.
It rocks me from my tired trail.
Transforming message, ne’er serene,
Sends birds a-flight to whirl away.
As sand meets water, so I lean.
I scarcely sense, but don’t delay
To race the tides before their wave
Sends birds a-flight to whirl away.
A burst of breeze does spirit save.
It chills me so, yet still it dares
To race the tides before their wave.
Somehow I sense the Maker shares
A secret sort of summoning.
It chills me so, yet still it dares –
A secret sort of summoning.

A terzanelle is a poetic form which employs a strict rhyme sequence and the repetition of specific lines. This structure can be tricky to produce, while maintaining appropriate rhythms and sense, but the result can be telling indeed.
