lyrics

Grass wheels in spools
Like frightened minnows
A tangle of seedpods & dirt
Swaying trees, uncertain
Digging your toes into the roots

I stare at the sky
Eyes frail like window glass
Drowsy, yet playing

The clouds offer no reflection
No simmering light
Tenderness too is a translation
You’ve laid down there once
On the ground
Bones in the wind
Move landscapes again
There is a shudder

Sunken, swaying
Eyes frail like window glass
I stare at the sky
Because I can be gentle
While looking at it
