Water

Unwavering duty,
inhering beauty,
flowers,
picked,
water,
stand still,
fresh,
in your kitchen,
my familiar,
space,
your arms,
my resting place,

Acquisition

After everything was looted,
they shuffled around muted,
licking their lips,
slapping their chops,
beer, wine and whisky,
time to get frisky,
shit and piss,
fading into the abyss,
Nubian knights,
riding white horses,
thundering hooves,
splash of streams,
babbling brooks,
mountains and plains,
fertile forests,
cynical,
though only by acquisition,
will we ever truly know,

We were wrong

We were wrong,
time is vast,
currently we only know a fraction of the past,
new directions, 
turning points,
welcome change in course,
albeit by force,
learned comrades and fallen friends,
ends meet,
maintaining wisdom,
with scandal and whispers,
we stand with you,
as branches wain in the wind,
green shoots fed from roots in healthy soil,
guests in your garden,
we beg your pardon,

Appreciation

I am here,
stood right there,
moment so precious,
I feel the pressure not to waste,
savour and know right from wrong,
there is always the unknown,
unheard and unexpected,
there is also the comforting,
known and caring,
while they play,
I sing,
filling their sounds with my song,
my head spins,
like a new drunk,
fresh,
I feel the air,
cool warm water, 
vivid sky,
lights crystal clear,
I hold myself to account,

Morning Sun

Interpretation,
translation,
beauty,
evoking,
revoking,
rebuking,
refuting,
in no position to comment,
a wicked smile,
behind dancing eyes,
mischievous wisdom,
sincere humour,
willing life,
from dark rich soil,
the morning sun,
i work in her damp heat,
glad of the chance,

Promise

Carefully wrote,
with a hand around it's throat,
come tomorrow,
forgive us today,
devastatingly accurate,
furiously fast,
she silences the fight,
mistaken armies,
surprised by her might,
darkest envelopes the land,
parcelling fears,
shedding tears,
teachings do no justice,
love no vice,
tightening their grip,
crushing themselves,
free spirits,
wash empty shores for a thousand years,
slowly reforming,
taking their turn,
oceans offer land it's next promise,
beaten against the rocks,
beginning their angry misfortune,
delving we must learn,

Gliding

Birds flew over, fish swam past,
wondering, was I actually last to know,
integrate chemical mysteries,
guiding a physical flow,
few distant faces,
faint beats,
songs played,
related repetitions,
oil paint so thick I could feel it on my hands,
unplanned,
re-learnt,
space, tide and time,
gravity,
floating,
gliding in the wind,
soaring,
diving,
swooping,
little glimpses,
into the scale of that which I do not know,
wandering,
I ask questions when my fortitude allows,
standing,
she addresses a weary crowd,
a beautiful dress,
shining hair,
her voice boomed loud,
