The siren's lament


Howling far away


Sings the story


The futile search


The reaching in vain


The trodden under foot


Wailing in the background of our lives


.. ..


April sun is setting golden


Through the cemetary trees


And all the scents of the fairer season


Color the hilltop breeze


There's something in this graveyard hour


That stirs my soul within


To a place I know I've been before


That I know I'll leave again


And as that gold light sinks away


Unveiling a sea of stars


I've no doubt it still shines somewhere else


On some cemetary afar


And flowers are growing around gravestones


And the birds are singing in the sky


In the springtime garden of the dead


Where none go for pleasure but I


.. ..


Only one man has ever walked this earth


Only one ship ever sailed in the sea


Only one woman has ever given birth


Only one person ever called their self "me"


.. ..


It's funny how sometimes


when looking at someone


who's saying something to me


though I try and I try


to look into their eyes


eyeballs are all I can see


And though their words touch my ears


Not one word can I hear


Their consonants and vowels all in vain


and all these things that they're after


just don't really seem to matter


funny gadgets, idle facts, financial gain


and it's strange, at times, the grass around me


is as green as grass could strive to be


but I pass by, take no notice of the hue


And the sun it shines so brightly


And the stars they twinkle nightly


And the flowers glow red, yellow, violet, blue


But as these miracles unfold before me


I look but somehow do not see


I seem at times to be lost in the world


So time it passes by the hour


My moods they shift from sweet to sour


All around me thoughts and feelings spin and swirl


Until I see I'm sinking down


My forehead wrinkled, my lips a frown


And I know that there is something I've misplaced


And just like that, it all comes back


My thoughts and concerns crumble and crack


I, me, and mine are shattered, laid to waste


And in the simple truth of a yellow flower


All fear and anger shrieks and cowers


There are not two, no thing to praise, no thing to shun


And as the sun begins to rise


Shining love behind my eyes


Shining through me


I am empty


Only one


.. ..


As the day disappears


Of it's own accord


The flat world is veiled from my eyes


I rest in the darkness


And my blindness reveals to me


The one infinite sea


It's boundless depths


Strewn with shining stars


Like a field of wildflowers


A never-ending expanding-ever


Dancing symphonically


Painting on nothingness itself


Through which the images slip and pass


Even as they forever remain


And as I close my eyes to sleep


The stars in my heart


Shine also in that sea


The very same


.. ..


There is a moment


Between buildings


When the snowflakes


No longer fall


They stop, where they are


Look me in the eye


And then they rise


So playfully flying


Like a flock of stars


Like weightless children


And I am lost


Beautifully abandoned


Boundless in their dance
