Under His heaven;

Is where I wait,

I wait with you.

Silenced voice

listening to my mind,

wordless surrender,

and I exist in you.

I’ve seen a man who has drowned. Found face-down, blotched skin, blue and purple tinge, bruises fading and swollen. Tide had brought him in, water swirling, earth set in its spin. Someone’s everything; feeling nothing for anyone, came to rest as nobody’s anything. 



Above, storm after storm.
I stroll, mile on mile. 

Under, grey on grey.

Going where earth has gone, 

a river does not lose its way. 


   

Whilst they grasp at Summer, 

one by one we let the seasons go.


Lightning piercing a distant hill,

stormy skies here stir a wonder.

Roaring winds coming to a still,

stood in silence after thunder. 


Seldom are not sorrows, nor are we sedentary creatures. No surprise dreams go in search of singing songbirds.


Tender from past sorrows, gentle the demand.
