Artist's Description

  • Poem Collaboration time people :) :)

The idea here is to add TWO lines of the poem and let someone else add another two lines as we form a poem around the photo that can be added to the Red Bubble Collaboration Hub. :) Get involved and let’s see what wonderful work we can all make together :) :)

Hapless in the wind again
No need to turn and wonder
Fateful days are coming soon
bareback on roll of thunder
Lightening streamers from broken clouds
As I gaze towards the sea
The sea gazes right back at me
Oh I see I see the sea
For wind it empowers me, of this i am sure
and to the skies i reach whilst on circular chore
and as i watch, with all my wonder
the reaching skies, the clouds out yonder
a broken sentinel, stark and still
beneath a reborn sky
And while I gaze upon the mill, the battered blades laid bare
It is my soul, for all to see, far beyond repair
For my soul has been ripped and torn for many a long year
But unlike the clouds of recent times, I’m unable to shed a tear
broken blades to gods creation, reaching out to me
the tears and fears fading fast, his light embracing me
Surrendered now, come thick come fast
The deed is done my time has passed
Back to dreaming of by-gone years
I can remember through broken tears
That I danced along the edge of fear
Just to get your warmth so near
and one says, what am I doing there??
just passing by, and going to nowhere
but nowhere’s not so far
I’m carried upon the winds of time beyond a distant star
Shadow sways; its hold relinquished
Illuminating day renews the spirit
The battered windmill, atop the hill
Looking as though Iife has stood still
battered and twisted it stands still strong
not even weather could kill

Have a look at this as a JE HERE with credits to the collaborators :) VBS

Or look HERE to view this as a Card with the poem on it :)
