mixed colours

spring and autumn breeze blows gently
to the tune of the sing-song cicadas’ fray
the percussion of crunching leaves sets a beat in time
in time and space they play
enter winter winds and summer’s fires
creating tension and harmonies that guide
flux and flow of life determined by the tide

I yearned for the love and the life
to lessen the burden of a wife and strife
I looked at the moon too soon
and fretted the moments unravelling before my eyes

were I wise and were I simplified
I would drive to the beyond and back again
were I a simple man
I would sing a sample of every song under
the canopy of heaven

and night and day have mixed their colours
taking turns at shifts every twelve golden hours
did you see the sunset, or the early morning sunrise
dawn, did you stop to listen to the patter of the rain
