The Name That Lives

by Darrell Carter

There is a name
that lives within me.
I cannot speak this name
with words,
for only with what lives within me
can this name be spoken.
Only with the spirit
and energy of being
that is me
is this name spoken.
The sun,
the stars,
the Earth Mother,
that consciousness of life
we call the Heavenly Father
know me of this name.
The eagle and hawk,
the horse, the dog
speak with me through this name.
And the Tree of Life
spreads its branches
as it will
and gives of that Fruit of Life
within its season.
