Whispered song

Whispered song

Place my ear to you
and hear the fields
that hush within

all the silent sunlight
settling over your grass

the darkness of water
turning clear
as it un-knots itself

threads of birdsong
gently bowing
between the blades
glinting like spider webs
licked by the sun

the cries of children
snagged in the branches
torn plastic bags

I hear the crackle of fire
from within the oil drum
that is your heart

the crumbling of old leaves
I whisper a song
as I warm my hands

    1. Hi Tony that is an incredibly kind and generous comment. I’m glad my verse is generating a different perspective on this multi-faceted world and life we lead. Like I said before love your musings on the creative process of song writing and started to listen to your music, wonderful stuff. If you’re ever touring in the UK I will be there.
