When Bees Make Honey In A Goat's Skull

Beauty sees what beauty seeks
and skies and skies
You arrive at your final wandering
of many, of many and
what once stood for failure.
Trojan Sycamores whisper in the fields
you tumbled upon as a child
as a child playing conkers
on the warm-wet buttercups.

Beauty feels what beauty frees, 
the splendid energy of fresh death
like a sweet flower in a
nook of soft bone 
winking up
at the sun
a trance renewed in the great shawl
of finality. You think

There is no end
There is no end

Hi Keanan,

This also has a post rock title vibe to it. I could imagine Godspeed You Black Emperor or Mogwai using this.

This would be a great lyric too!

Nice wriite. Thanks for sharing.

I get a feeling of freeform experimentation that has some finely sculptured thoughts and is rather satisfying and haunting. Nice one.

Thank you Cynthia ☺ i I actually ripped off a rock band called Earth. One of their albums is called the bees made honey in the tigers skull however they probably ripped it off someone else. I'll more than likely change it as I don't like using some thing so close to the originall without asking first. In fact this will be the first time I've ever come even close. I'm going to email them and ask because they're not that famoushe. Thanks for the comment, much appreciated

Splendid thinking, and writing. The title is superb. Why do I think I've heard this reference before? Possibly Biblical? It just 'tinkles in my brain'; but maybe just because it's so good. So ANCIENT!
