Repetition: The Earth’s Opera

the steady flow of water cascading down ancient cliffs

fed by hidden springs forever full

repeating repeating repeating

a cycle stretching back to the dawn of time

a chorus of crickets singing

repeating repeating repeating

the heartbeats of mother Earth

the sound of whistling winds

repeating repeating repeating

a secret orchestra for the universe

and songs for other galaxies

repeating repeating repeating

throughout eternity
