I picked up a small quartz crystal that Azad had given to me during one of my visits to the Rock and Gem Shop. As I held it in my hand, I mentioned to Derek that I could feel an odd sensation inside my left ear.
'Knowing' something important was about to take place, he quickly clipped a lapel microphone onto my jacket. What good insight that Derek had such a presence of mind to ask, "Now you've acknowledged the sensation, what would it like to say?"
I felt compelled to reply, "I have much to tell you, due to circumstances that have brought us together, and you have much to hear," then, without pausing for breath, the following words of poetry just poured out of my mouth:
Derek asked what the poem meant, and I heard my response as I described the vision I was seeing: "It is to do with religious persecution. There was a vow taken that we would all meet again in another time... we knew we would be back together again, to declare our beliefs once more."
