On two photographs

There is a shadow on a tree
There are reflections on the water
If the clouds come
These will vanish
It’s all about the light
I know I’m right
Without light
Neither exists
Without the light we bring each other
We live in a world of darkness
We would cast no shadows
We would not be reflected in another’s life
And this is an important fact
We need to share
Without sharing we could cast as many shadows
As we like but no one would pay
The slightest bit of attention
We just exist in our own heads for the briefest of time
Then all will be lost
I’m not sure who would miss us

The moon didn’t leave my sky
I pushed it away
I gave it an almighty shove
But I’m hurting now
So much so that wished
I had left it alone
There is a massive hole
In my heart that nothing tonight
Can make better and I am so scared
To attempt to fix it fast
I am lonely already
I am trying to hold it together
By telling myself it’s for the best
But now I am really, really alone
I’m sorry
My heart cannot take it
Either way is sadness
I miss you so much already
What shall I do?
I need a friend more than I need a lover
Not sure I will sleep tonight
I will still look for your message
Every day all day
Although I know it will never come

Moon

The earth I think is envious of the moon
For the moon reflects its brilliance eternally
The earth can only hope to bathe in its light when the clouds allow it

The earth needs its moon
For without the moon
The earth would surely spin and tumble
Stray from its path, diminish and be lost

Before the Snow

Before the snow comes
There is stillness
A palpable feeling
Of something approaching
I felt it yesterday
In the field
This is Warwickshire remember
Not a coastline
Not a windswept moor
Not a glen or a mountainous region
The furthest from the sea
In England one could be
But I heard it coming through its silence
There was a booming like a hundred jet engines
That turned my head and made me look
For the end of days
This booming lay beneath the cloud line
Noise is often captured this way
In louring cloud cover
Then the silence
A hush a dampening of existence
I looked around expectantly
Snow was falling
Tiny, tiny almost fairy raindrops
But snow none the less
Making a slight noise on my hooded coat
Creeping in upon my face too
Nature
Seasons
Winter
Snow

The Poet

Here I sit watching the day out
No-one beside me who may doubt
All of the words that I could chose to say
So listen, believe, or be gone from this day
I need a friend to walk with me
And sit in the shade of an old tree
To think nothing much, just agree with my thoughts
To say nothing much, never tell what I ought
Watching the people pass by now
They just don’t know why or know how
They don’t seem to care about all that I’ve seen
They just walk on by never knowing I’ve been
Sitting up here where I’m wind blown
Only to ask and to be shown
Things that would make you believe what I say
I’ll tell you myself and I’ll show you some day

Dancing Barefoot

Patti Smith

She is benediction
She is addicted to thee
She is the root connection
She is connecting with he

Here I go and I don’t know why
I fell so ceaselessly
Could it be he’s taking over me?

I’m dancing barefoot
Heading for a spin
Some strange music draws me in
Makes me come on like some heroine

She is sublimation
She is the essence of thee
She is concentrating on
He, who is chosen by she

Here I go and I don’t know why
I spin so ceaselessly
Could it be he’s taking over me?

I’m dancing barefoot
Heading for a spin
Some strange music draws me in
Makes me come on like some heroine

She is re-creation
She, intoxicated by thee
She has the slow sensation that
He is levitating with she

Here I go and I don’t know why
I spin so ceaselessly
‘Til I lose my sense of gravity

I’m dancing barefoot
Heading for a spin
Some strange music draws me in
Makes me come on like some heroine

Oh, God, I fell for you
Oh, God, I fell for you
The plot of our life sweats in the dark like a face
Oh, God, I fell for you
The mystery of childbirth, of childhood itself
Grave visitations
Oh, God, I fell for you
What is it that calls to us?
Why must we pray screaming?
Why must not death be redefined?
Oh, God, I fell for you
We shut our eyes we stretch out our arms
Oh, God, I fell for you
And whirl on a pane of glass
Oh, God, I fell for you
An afixiation a fix on anything the line of life the limb of a tree
Oh, God, I fell for you
The hands of he and the promise
Oh, God, I fell for you
That she is blessed among women
Oh, God, I fell for you
Oh, God, I fell for you

Four Strong Winds

Neil Young

Think I’ll go out to Alberta
Weather’s good there in the fall
I got some friends that I could go to working for.
Still I wish you’d change your mind
If I ask you one more time
But we’ve been through this a hundred times or more.

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don’t change come what may.
If the good times are all gone
Then I’m bound for movin’ on
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way.

If I get there before the snow flies
And if things are lookin’ good
You could meet me if I send you down the fare.
But, by then it would be winter
Not too much for you to do
And those winds sure can blow cold way out there.

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don’t change come what may.
The good times are all gone
So I’m bound for movin’ on
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way.

Still I wish you’d change your mind
If I ask you one more time
But we’ve been through that a hundred times or more.

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don’t change come what may.
If the good times are all gone
Then I’m bound for movin’ on
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way.
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way.

Be on my side, I’ll be on your side
There is no reason for you to hide
It’s so hard for me staying here all alone
When you could be taking me for a ride

You take my hand, I’ll take your hand
Together we may get away
This much madness is too much sorrow
It’s impossible to make it today.
