I would hear you speak in lilting tones
there is hope displayed, in crinkling laughter
the lines around your eyes, portrayed
the mists of time cloak us, invite stillness
where did we wander years ago?
the sun ignites ,an earth is trembling
moon draws ocean, on and oh
the trees etch beauty in the landscape
carpet, colour, catch, the breeze
sway or bend, in dancing torrents
rise and fall us to our knees
In love with life, or just playacting?
moods can swallow whole, our mind
let the muse, lead boldly forward
backward looks will clocks define
chime chime time
