The Intimacy of the World With the World

This song is by Mount Eerie and appears on the album No Flashlight (2005).

The only reason I'm moved seeing clouds and hills mingle
Is because the intimacy of the world otherwise stays hidden.
Even though I know it's there
(In animals calling,
In the cave overflowing.
In the food I've built on,
In the song of the bat,
And in rotting bodies unfolding)
I am touched each time I can see hand-holding.
Mist married to branches married to me with my eyes,
Stopping my work for a moment to say
"What a generous place is unveiling here!"
"Thank you. We have enough."
