All seeing and feeling
With hope for a future
She fights alone
And weeps in silence
We should listen
Deeply wounded she fights on
As parts of her die
Her vision never leaves the sky
Staring towards the heavens
With a prayer on her breath and resolve slowly weakening
We begin to hear
Small acts become large bolstered by numbers
She finds breaths become easier
Only as we fight for her soul
Can the world become whole
In the hilltop forest
They swirl, dance
Lost to the music
Lost to themselves
They still to listen…
Feeling as much as hearing
Howls, calls and coos
In a pulse the music returns
And the world goes dark
Twitching violently they hit the floor as one
Speaking in tongues
Harsh messages are heard, absorbed
Then silence followed by subdued light
All that remains is the omen
With kindness only we survive
We lay together viewing city lights dance
Against starry skies
Illumination only we see.
Shades of people pass by
As night chill prickles skin.
Interlopers hiding in shadow we cling
Weighted by it's gravity.
Brought back to each other
As light begins to play with shadow
Loving in the dark we feel most free.
'Those the Gods love
They must first destroy"
Euripides 5th Century B.C.
Never fear as shadows draw near
Those who sit through the night are first to see the dawn.
let the warmth and light of morning wash over you
As the darkness of night passes
Let the song of the universe soothe your soul
And the memories you created
Be left as a gift
Let the beauty of your life
Be carried into spiritual immortality
And part of the essence of you be retained within me
Peace be yours forever
We step into existence from beyond the veil
With our fate stamped upon our souls.
Marking distinctions between science and faith
We find ourselves advancing through the cycle of life.
The Leapster or Leap Year baby
Shares a joke with the cosmos
Flouting our concept of time
To be born within times eternal spring
In life's cycle of ever green
We look to the stars
In order to be seen.
We carry our scars and hide our weaknesses sometimes trying to forget who we are to become someone else.
We hurt others in attack and defence whilst shielding those we love to create barriers against the outside world.
We try to do more, be more
Measuring ourselves by success or failure.
On our best days we forget ourselves and put others first.
We come to learn, sometimes, our biggest success can come from our greatest failures.
He carves words he has spoken
Of promises unbroken
whispering into the dark
Chiselling delicately into her bones
With tobacco juice to bring out the tones
Quietly engraving symbols and psalms
Living for the night
Working through to the light
Communing only through dreams
In daylight she's secure
Inside a white Alder tree
Protected and respected
Her spirit flies free
