Another Day

Not ready yet
The truth is not allowed
Don't give those birds their wings
Keep the cage door shut
They can wait a while
As the sun keeps us warm
Another day

Telepathy

Wols: Komposition (auch "Rose" genannt)Staatsgalerie Stuttgart

 




























That feeling of being alone
But you are silent
Of an observer listening in
Hearing what is important

We never talk about the times 
When I say things without words
And you love me with your eyes shut

That feeling of something else
In empty spaces
Of voids and inexistent distance
Leaving behind no traces

We never talk about the times 
When I say things without words
And you love me with your eyes shut

Half way up the stairs

Two circles ago
Practicing together on the stairs
For a rap.

Your frustration at the fear
Your sight, your message, our sound.
And, in the end, loud and clear
You echo around.

Two circles ago
Practicing together on the stairs
For a rap.

I, me, us, we ........

Self-definition at a tipping point
Stretches, tugs, tears sinews
That bind until they break
Away

For survival or for the better good?

There is still blood in the water
And on the ground.

Spectre














Foghorn loud

Inaudible

In plain sight

Invisible

Arrogant, proud

Implausible

Dark pool fight

Derisible

Just a Moment














Life.
Love
To watch you
Play, enjoy, explore.
Weaving
Experiments
Fearless
In the mix
And more.

So bad, so good


So bad, bad, bad
Deliciously bad, bad, bad

If anyone knew
What I'm planning to do

So bad, bad, bad
Deliciously bad, bad, bad

Up to my tricks
Soon might be in a fix

So bad, bad, bad
Deliciously bad, bad, bad

Feel happy inside
But trying to hide

It's so bad, bad, bad,
Deliciously bad, bad, bad

Message



After the builders broke through the wall
The old blue broken bottle
Lay forgotten at the door
Clear bright message from before
Indigo deep
The sort you just don't see any more
Not something to keep
But to treasure

Vanishing Point




 This is
the point
to which
return

No sound
around
but breath 
alone

Distractions
linger
all else
is gone

Curled Up



Broken bones
recovering
sleepily 
uninspired.

Silent, lost
and stubbornly
so deeply, 
deadly tired.

Can't we find another way?













Old politics have had their day
Can't we find another way
Welcomed by us all
All of us together

Change would be good thing
Hope, a fresh beginning
Welcomed by us all
All of us together

Ownership and influence
Power to make a difference
Welcomed by us all
All of us together

Energy and balancing
Experience transforming
Welcomed by us all
All of us together

Across the hills, through towns and fields
Mellowed hearts and island souls
Sisters, brothers, bloodlines more
Over borders, winds and walls
Welcomed one and all
All of us together

Have things changed?


That was a very smart black suit
Very sharp
And you looked well slim and strong
When you lay on the ground
Prostrate
Then unwound
That shock
Very tight
Of wiry long straight white

Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star


Twinkle twinkle Christmas star
Winter glistens in the dark
Wishes magically fulfil
And nothing seems impossible
Wrap up hope and keep it warm
Share and shelter from the storm

Laugh and live and dare to dream
While moments, choices, chances teem
Persist and push until it seems
Things can be better than they’ve been

Twinkle twinkle Christmas star
Winter glistens in the dark
Wishes magically fulfil
And nothing seems impossible
Explore and search
and distance gaze
Keep wondering and being amazed

Missing

Sad hand
Forlorn
On hard road
Under cold sun
Fingers drooping over once proud fur cuff
Lost and,
As if indignity was not enough,
Alone.

Invitation




Come into my world with me

Rage inside my soul

Tell me how things ought to be

Make me face them all

Realisation



Edit, consolidate
Pull together
Celebrate

Enjoy, integrate
Live forever
Appreciate

All we have 
Inside, around
In a slither of time
Constrained, unbound

all
we have
all
we have
we
have it all

Edit, consolidate
Pull together
Celebrate

Enjoy, integrate
Live forever
Appreciate

all
we have
all
we have
