Artist's Description

What makes a sunset set on fire
burn with such desire
Like a mothers love
comes from above

We sense our womb
In delirious room we
swim the sea
we float

To be free

Now away from the sea
so far now
Her blood flows here
courses our veins

in you and me
is the womb of life
We carry it now
so very protected

So precious the red that connects to our source
we study it cradle it carry it most
precious blood flows our veins
we walk the earth without reins

Carry on until the sun is gone
watching for a moment
the spectacular scene
from which we’ve all been weened

Comes blood red water
burning the coast
caress our minds
how we need it most.

Like blood on water
we see the coast
glisten so now
with her toast

You and me
we can see
what it does us
creatures so far removed

from the sea we came
now stand our ground
we have found
so comfortable in thought

The brief meeting of our blood
fires the sea
now I see the sea in me
So long ago I know the source

So long ago
I see most
my humble beginnings
upon this coast

I connect now
which I love most
