Before time was, I am.
Before all that is
was but a whisper in the wind,
I was the wind.

Before those stones
rose up there
that made that mountain high and wide ...

I was the water
coursing
in the dark streams
beneath the Earth ...

In the dark ways
where Light was not
I brought the Light.
I brought the days.

And now,
In this haze of Dark and Light
I bring the Light again
to humankind
That we may know
the Spirit on the water,
the wind behind Creation.

And that we may bring
that glory back to Earth
that once was hers

Stonegate

This is the gate between the worlds.
This is the newest knowing
An adventure, even for God!

Something new
something undreamed of.

From this day forth
there shall be a door
A door in the stone wall
that was once
that which prevented us from knowing.

Stonegate

Even the sylphs of the air rejoice today.
