You will have both my love and respect from the second we meet
Nothing to lose
Only something most precious to keep
I am different, you see
From so many of my breed
While I live as I breathe
My skin tends to impede
Feel immensely relieved to have dreamed my little dream
As it led me indirectly to the middle of the stream
It was here, within the river
I was infinitely seen
So forgive me for each echo of this vision I repeat

Every time that I create
I find a place for all the words that get away from me
Playfully I ply my trade beneath the shade of celebrated maple tree
For such has been the way since mother nature reawakened me
Every drop of essence tended painterly
Not a heightened sense misspent mistakenly
Naked to the bones
Below which there exists a vacancy

Wildflowers bloom from root to shoot
Saluting skies of kind commute
My eyes recline as they regroup
My heart delights
And it’s no fluke
I muse on flight
When altitude is only ever rising
Elated as to magnitude of evergreen horizon

You will have a friend no end should you extend such invitation
Something to depend upon
And sturdy of foundation
Eternally upgraded
Of condition undictated
For essentially I bare my whole self naked
Through my art
My wish this gift to lift the mists and kiss each littered scar

I am different, you see
From so many of my breed
Yet in so many ways
I’m the same
We all possess the essence best to shake the tree and dress the bled leaves veins

We all draw breath
We all exhale
We all can walk
More favoured trail
We all fall down
We all prevail
Can all rise up at height of sail
Should we stand tall
And tell our tales
With boundless poise and gracefully
Then we place bliss where there exists a vacancy

Wildflowers bloom from root to shoot
Saluting skies of kind commute
My eyes recline as they regroup
My heart delights
And it’s no fluke
I muse on flight
When altitude is only ever rising
Elated as to magnitude of evergreen horizon

In so many ways
We are children of nature
Brave as the flowers of wildest arrangement
Friends of the earth
When our ventures concur the engender of timely persuasion
It is here, within the river of our souls
That we are seen
Can relive each deepened echo of this vision we repeat
Feel immensely relieved
We are endlessly free
To set unlimitable scenes
To dream forever little dreams

Wildflowers bloom from root to shoot
Saluting skies of kind commute
My eyes recline as they regroup
My heart delights
And it’s no fluke
I muse on flight
When altitude is only ever rising
Elated as to magnitude of evergreen horizon

  1. Wow fantastic effects on this! The interludes are reminiscent of Born Slippy ny Underworld.
