What is the deep listening?
Sama is a greeting from the secret ones
inside the heart, a letter.
The branches of your intelligence
grow new leaves in the wind of this listening.
The body reaches a peace.
Rooster sound comes,
reminding you of your love for dawn.
The reed flute and the singer's lips.
The knack of how spirit breathes into us
becomes as simple and ordinary
as eating and drinking.
The dead rise with the pleasure of listening.
If someone cannot hear a trumpet melody,
sprinkle dirt on him and declare him dead.
