New Bell

Life's clarion call, and Manu Dibango

Glorious gift of body and mind,

may I never take them for granted.

Even when I wish to trade or flee,

may I find reverence for reverie.

Veil of phospholipid bi-layer

contains a bioelectric universe.

Fluttering leaves

swaying through treetops

Dance with secret sensual power.

On butterfly wings

and whale song

life whispers it's clarion call:

"Embodiment is temporary,

but life is infinite.

Participation is mandatory,

but understanding is optional."

For all my consternation and argument,

the cosmos has yet to ask me to leave.

(New Bell - Manu Dibango)
