When we had woken

When we had woken, the last of the rain, That had fallen so hard began to lift, And the sky had brightened for it to feign, A turgid dawn as if it was a gift. For you and I with clasped hands, cheek on cheek, Knew only of each other and the pain. Possessing nothing, […]

I have sailed these seas

I have sailed these seas, Lost between the still waters and the land, Far from the maddening crowd. Is the voice that resonates And the thought the same. Does the sound differ from the song. Or is the sea the sound the generates the song. Is there no song without the sea. I have listened […]
