Blades of Grass

(oehler/goedken/merenkov)

I am looking for you
In every word and every glance
Searching for you
Lost along every blade of grass

The reasons that keep us around
The ideas that are pulling you down
Maybe they’ll be revealed
When quiet answers fall to the ground

I am searching for you
With every step and every dance
Trying to find you
Here among every pane of glass

The seasons and the ages torn
The notions that the fates adorn
Maybe they’ll be released
When the shapes they hold once again are worn

I am looking to you
With every vow and each advance
Calling to you
From out among these blades of grass

The regions that midnight holds down
Shallow forms that we surround
Maybe they’ll be revealed
When frozen chances once more are found

I am searching for you
In every breath and every chance
Trying to find you
Lost among all these blades of grass

The reasons that sweep us aground
The ideas that keep pulling you down
Maybe they’ll be released
When all the answers once more sound.

Arabic lyrics adapted by Raya Wolfsun from “My Cup and My Wine” by 8th century Sufi poet Rabi’a Al-Adawiyya.
