An Endless Ode To Home

Brian Eno “Fleeting Smile”

Home is where the heart resides
Where artful tones in calm confide
The answers to a thousand trials
The whereabouts of kin

It’s not a case of fitting in
But finding that one missing link
The kind of ancient discipline
That whispers when we listen in

We may have walked for countless miles
And fought for half that distance
But still we sought rose quartz aside
The path of least resistance

Harder falls forewarned
Forearmed our bargain with resolve
And all that untoward
Engorged darned scars with psalm untold

From beetleweed to ceiling beam
To peaceful sleep
Cathedral dream
Foreseen belief
In brief redeem
Yet endless sweet remembrance

Bled to bones
Skin shed alone
Each mortal breath undressed atone
In sacrifice
The reddened stone
Of heavenly resemblance

Home is where the heart resides
Where artful tones in calm confide
The answers to a thousand trials
The essence sensed alone

Only takes one glowing orb
To grace adore to knowing ward
To scale the walls of own accord
And hail the dawn’s enthrone

It’s not a case of fitting in
But finding that one missing link
The kind of ancient discipline
Which listens in for home

Its beat bids sweet remembrance
To the embers of the bones
Wherein forever cherubs sing
Its endless ode
