"Perhaps" ....a collaboration of lives.

Perhaps it’s when we do not wake up
Tide unwatched splashing earthy feelings untouched
Moments in that we are all alike in our uncertainty
Our displacement in surprise
Lines from you to me and back again
From your world into mine returning
Waking later in hours of strange places
Hungry seagulls falling on the beach confused
Weird scenes in that we prefer not to gather
Feelings left best alone
Standing idle in patience waiting for the next blossom
One season always around the corner
Perhaps it’s when summer deletes that warm day smell
Or Fall in countries where it goes by another name
Soft and brown on green carpet
Anticipating in days of expectation
Circles of disruption
How can we talk to the moon with daylight in our eyes
Dreaming and walking and waking to nothing
And yet we do
Shuffling in fallen leaves
Pining for what we know not
An air of unbroken storm cloud
It holds many powers
Shafts we feel deep inside prickling and addling
Unspoken truths that we may never know
Many times over we create our world in our own design
Satiate us hoping for an answer
Draw pictures on the blind to replace the ones we despise
Blind sounds that we can never understand
False stars crashing at our feet
Rainbows for personal use that may never be used
And yet somehow it seems to work
On days with eyes wide open
Or on days when we do not wake up
We can only ask do we live and have we lived before
Do we dream or not
And do we really want to know
Lifes mystery
Lifes wonder
Life is.

"Perhaps" ....a collaboration of lives.

Artist's Description

Inspired by a letter from Shar. Many of these words and thoughts came from her own head.
A collaboration with Autumnwind:
Thank you.
…update 29 March 2012 …..finding a typo after this amount of time is embarrassing. Is it fixed? Who can tell, there’s bound to be more.
