Spirit by Erin Looney

Of crisp brown leaves that fall upon my feet,

there is an unknown sense of love

that lies beneath me.

The seasons change but the tone of warmth

oh, how it rests within my soul

oh, how it embraces me into a mold

Listen! Oh, the forthcoming of wind

in swirls, in circles lifting me into the air.

The love that lies beneath me

is the love that lies within me.

Of snow that stings my toes,

there is an unknown sense of guidance

that lies within me.

The seasons change but the inner-body

oh, how it grows within my soul

oh, how it launches me into the cold

Go! Oh, the rush in my feet

in power, in beat leading me home.

The guidance that lies beneath me

is the confidence that lies within me.

 

Of petals that swirl around my hair,

There is an unknown sense of mobility

that lies above me.

The seasons change but the desires

oh, how it calls me

oh, how it engulfs me

Chase! Oh, the pounding in my heart

in power, in capability I strive.

The mobility that lies above me

is the prosperity that lies within me.

Of sprinklers that spray my skin,

There is a known sense of fulfillment

that lies throughout me.

The season's change but the spirit

oh, how I feel it

oh, how I am it

Laugh! Oh, the laughter from my heart

in contentment, in tranquility I dance.

The fulfillment that lies throughout me

is the spirit that lies within me.
