WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING
by Shannon Michael Terry

Sleep
Sleep
Dark angel

I will come again

When southern winds blow
I will go

To the
Northern shore

Sleep
Sleep
Dark angel

Resting on changing tides

Destiny has no time
and the
answers are written
in the wind

You are food
that nourishes
From the hand 
to the soul
to the earth
we are planted
rooted
strong

Standing in the center
like
water
over
fire
steam rises
and then its gone

We are clouds that
wander 

I will come again

Kicking frames
that bind

Borders

Ideas and concepts

That keep us
from seeing
what’s truly
inside

if we could only hear
the silence
that’s speaking
around us
