Black ragged clouds cross a deep blue sky.
Its always been the same and I can't say why.
I feel the sun, warm upon my skin,
but I know cold rains will come hit me again.
Born with a purpose I know nothing of.
Stuck halfway between loneliness and love.

Remember Ikkyu every day.
Adorned leaves with his poetry, then cast them away.
While we, in another time and place,
consign our efforts to cyberspace.
Ikkyu Sojun monk and poet

I am still,
(The world revolves and I turn with it)
I am still.
(It circles the sun and I move with it)
I am still.
(orbiting the galaxy and pulling me with it)
I am still.
(hurtling through space and I go with it)
I am still.
(Space expands forever faster, never ending, infinite...)
...and I am still.

Shadow of a fast car, stencilling  the tarmac black.
White lines in my rear view mirror, hurtling down the track.
Sun hangs, immobile,  heat upon my back.
A hand darts to the stereo - my favourite track!
My heart's so full of hope right now - i'm not giving up that.
I'm gonna drive,
I'm gonna drive,
I'm gonna
and I ain't coming back.

Eggs, sugar, flour and butter.
The incantation that I mutter.
Heat, Time and a lightly greased pan.
What Alchemy! for the common man.

Loud drums in the distance, we ran to find their beat.
Outside Maternity stood a huge Sikh throng,
clapping in time, with dance and song.
What unexpected spectacle this and we join in full of joy.

"Its a boy! It's a boy!
It's a boy!"

Frost on the windscreen,
Heater started,
Rainbows in ice crystals!
Gift of the morning.
