We still stand on shifting sands

We walked on sea shores with our mates
Though wide  oceana separate
Now we’re abandoned on the  shores
By  the loves we’ll see no more


We  still stand on shifting  sands
Expecting , needing, helping hands
But most people walk on by
And we’re too afraid to cry

Lost in places we once knew
But recognised by  very few
Our eyes  look out but do not see
Filled by tears we can’t set free

Shall we stay here evermore
Hoping lovers we adored
Are on their way back to their home
As slowly, sadly, we still roam?

The  sturdy walls that bear the sky
Have been shattered from on high
And  feeling smaller than the snails
We hear the long lost sea winds wail

Oh, weep for  him and me, wide seas
Embrace  our souls  in   your salt breeze
See the  crushed and broken shells
Hear the tolling of the bells

In order to begin we have to part

In order to begin,we have to start
Put a wary foot onto the soil
From what we want to keep, from that we part

Pulsating with strong feeling is the heart
Even while we sleep our body toils
In order to begin,we have to start

Every artist needs to do their work
Letting colours mingle well with oil
From what we want to keep, from that we part

Can one cling to patterns to gain worth?
Ask me if the kettle wants to boil
In order to begin,we have to start

Stepping in the furrows of dark earth
See the worms and beetles to it loyal
From what we want to keep, from that we part

Even ants and wasps.I deem as royal
Block the liars with their self hating bile
In order to begin,we have to start
To what we want to make we give our hearts

Heed

Our toe nails grow more slowly than do weeds
We do not use them for defence like claws
And if we tear the skin, our toes will bleed

Take care of fingers, toes,give what they need
If we were tigers, we would have great paws
Our toe nails grow more slowly than the weed
s

On a dirty toe, do not plant seeds
Grow no runner beans, though you enjoy
And if we tear the skin, our toes will bleed

Do not grill your digits, please give heed
I give my commands for this is War
Our toe nails grow more slowly than do weeds

Fortunately toe nails do not breed
Lions have got big teeth, that gives me pause
If we break the skin, our toes will bleed

On my shin, a lion might love to gnaw
How strange a world where killing is a law
Our toe nails grow more slowly than huge weeda
Do not kick the bin, your feet might bleed
