For the past few days I've been listening to "The Song of Purple Summer" (Spring Awakening's final song) and taking a good look at all the flowers I pass by on the way to work/school/home. I know they've always been there, but I keep feeling like couldn't fully comprehend them before.
But I already know that I've "woken up" and I'm passing into a new spring of my life, since I went through about a month of constant epiphany. The weird part happens whenever I get to this line:
"And all shall know the wonder: I will sing the song of purple summer."
Doesn't matter whether I sing it or I listen on my iPod, but when the song gets to that point, I feel something in the flowers surge up with this "YEEEEEES" vibe. They tend to feel louder when I'm actually singing, and if I'm not singing already, I get this "Go for it!" vibe, so... I do. XD
It can't be my imagination because despite no other human being with me, it feels like an audience is responding to what I'm doing, and that's a hard kind of energy to manufacture alone. Also, to confirm my suspicions: I tried singing this song to the peace-lilies at home, budding plants, and the trees near my apartment--nothing "responds" unless it's in full blossom.
It's really nice, don't get me wrong, it's just that I've never actually felt plants' spirits before. I follow the Morrigan from the Irish pantheon, and she's connected to fertility, so would this be caused by her somehow?
