Call it dreaming

"My son Brandon died 9 years ago. I have returned from Indiana to Texas where he was born and mixed his ashes in with my garden. I have brought my child home." YOUTUBE comment on 'Into Dust', Mazzy Star

I knew from the very beginning

The sun would rise

Teaching me to cast my eyes to heaven

Cloudy days are like sacrifices

To compensate we have the green

Water worlds, tall trees and dappled sunlight.

Some would like the world to be clean again

A pre-lapsarian garden of Eden. I would.


I knew from the very beginning that my heart was tender

Easily broken. I learnt there is no balm for the earth’s hurt.

There’s no point fooling around, pretending, time is short,

Wounds sometimes heal if we try and pray.


I knew from the very beginning

That I couldn't live with eyes closed,

Mind and senses anaesthetised,

Permanently marooned on the barren island of self

Developing a dryness of manner, being clever.

Alienating those who endure a closed life of repetition.


Simple used to be a high compliment as holy fools attest

Denying the vortex of doubt and casuistry

We walk in shade and sun, lay out a platter of dreams,

Walk towards these dreams

So tired from all the walking and thinking that we miss the dawn

Live too much at night , seek a cure in dreams and words,

It is time to give gifts of time and love beneath the holy sun.
