Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy (Searching) by 

You ask me where I’ve been,

Earth friend,

Searching, searching for the truth,

Reaching out listening.

Many is the time I’ve held him by the tail,

Only to find two feathers left,

To show there was a trail.

Yes I have been searching

Searching for the truth,

Lifting stones, listening.

Many is the time I caught him,

Locked him in a room,

Only to find the curtains waving

In the breeze. 

Never smile too soon with him my friend,

Never smile too soon.

I have searched and searched

My earth friend,

Running through the centuries,
From then till now to eons past.

Many is the time he talked me round,

We even sat to dine,

Only to find he left the room,

Before I served the wine.

Only to find he left the room,

Before I served the wine.

Yes, I have been searching

For the truth earth friend.

Searching across space, in space, through time.

Many of the signs he left quickened my flow,

Again to find he left the game

A universe ago.

Thank you for asking my dearest earthly friend,

But I’m searching not today.

Look close – be aware, 

The answer’s in my eyes,

Face to face we met today
And I’m clearing all those lies.
Yes, truth and I we met today, 

He’s closer than you see.

The truth is you

The truth is me

Whether here or in the seventh galaxy

The truth is you

The truth is me

    I saw this small and thought.. I WAS THERE lol.. many times, actually, but I truly loved it best when I could share it with you my friend. Wonderful…. HUGS!

  • I knew you would know this place right away, Maureen. It was so beautiful with all the contrasts. But the best part was sharing it with you my friend. Now I’m off to Florida for a few days with my sisters. These last couple of weeks have been like a whirlwind, and so exciting. xxx
