Shed a Drop


I’m lost in your summer
In your gentle heat haze.
Adrift in your ocean,
Those shimmering blue eyes.
Falling and falling,
Forever and a day
And I can’t help recalling
Every word you say.

And I wonder
Am I doing it right
Gazing on your beauty
In wordless delight.
Searching ever searching
For illuminating phrases
To shred the darkness,
Shed a drop of light.

If I am the shadows
Then you are the rays of the sun.
If I am a drop in the ocean
Then you are the one.

Searching ever searching
In wordless delight
Forever in twilight
Stumbling at dusk.
Wanting to shred the darkness,
Shed a drop of light.
Silence maybe golden
But it don’t get the words right.

When I give myself up to higher powers
And spread my wings. Or walk out into the ocean,
Dive beneath the water sharing my soul with the sea.
Then I will know the universe
Whose currents cradle me, will keep me whole.
Drawing me up towards the light
To take another breath. This spirit
In whose embrace I suffer a thousand little deaths.
The spirit is always there with me.
