Kids, Winter's night is taking us for a walk!
Flurried in excitement, my explorers don't
And it stings,
Slapped my breath hostage
And held both barrels to my heart,

If radio had not held my ear
These hills have got me hugging pillows.
Restless I chew a new landscape into cheek,
A shanty to
My back never lies
I just choose not to hear,
Until it's truth runs out of patience
As will eases
Do not let today pass
Hear the weight of deepest

Come find me thru warp & weft
Throw off veiled heart & misted mind
Come back to us
1974 he was gone.
Breath forced, she moved to the bang of a drum.
Now, soft snores of her 70 years
No marshmallow morning,
Pirates trod my back under moon.
Moored in still indigo sky we wait our
I love the jazz of rain - dad do you see me dig it? No polo neck, no clarinet but I’m moving in your
Dark clean slate morn seeps in routine rumble of play & bananas. Sated they descend to felt tip
