Landing 1969

In this moment of possibilities

I have reason to believe

Everything

Could or could not be

 

Shining sphere

Of our hopes and fears

In itself encloses

'The fortress of it’s own light'

 

And all that could unfold

 

 

 

 

 

Turn Fox Then

I sense you moving

On the sharp edges of morning

Fields a chaos of flowers

Lifting my head to the air

 

(there’s something coming for me only you can see)

 

Fur like fire turn towards the sun

There’s an imprint of you in everything I’ve done

Turn tail, take me with you do your worst for me

There’s something coming for me only you can see

 

Long since gone those flowers those fields

And you dancing around my desires

 

I promise I see you 

Come outside 

I’ll save you

I know

I’ll show you

Come see the ruby red

 

(Here we are home again Foxie)

 

Fire-fed

Ruby red

(Come see it all)

Turn fox then

 

(there’s something coming for me only you can see)

 

Fur like fire turn towards the sun

There’s an imprint of you in everything I’ve done

 

Turn tail, I’ll take you with me do your worst for me

There’s something coming for me only you can see

 

Everything I’ve done

Only you can see

High Hay

 

Our sweet summer

Trying to see the sun through our hands

‘Cos you were there too

 

High hay

I loved the house that we made that day

I was unsteady on your shoulders

And I was wise

I always felt older

 

And then your heart broke

And we all started running away

But I always came back

To the high hay

I loved to fall to you

And I was never hard to rescue

 

Oh for so long

I wanted to be the strong of heart

Who would find you weak

And lift you up

And carry you home

Over those heavy gates you closed around yourself

 

I would take you home

To the high hay

To A Place

 

All it takes is some woodsmoke in the air

All it takes is a blackbird on a rose

And I’m there

 

I slip I fall through the old garden wall

To a place where I don’t feel safe

 

I feel a fire when I miss you that hits me every day

I don’t even know what I hope for

It’s getting harder to say

 

You slip you fall

I cannot be sure if it’s longing or fear that I feel

When I know you’re near I’m not sure if I want this at all

But light is flooding through 

 

I feel a fire when I miss you that hits me every day

I don’t even know what I hope for

It’s getting harder to say

 

All it takes is some sugar in the air and I’m there

All it takes is a rose by a door and I’m there

 

I slip I fall through the old garden wall

To a place I don’t feel safe

 

I feel a fire when I miss you that hits me every day

I don’t even know what I hope for

It’s getting harder to say

 

I’m not sure if it’s longing or fear

That I feel when you’re near I’m not sure if I want this at all

 

But light is flooding through you

Starlings & Crows

 

They’re calling me home

The starlings and crows

I may not remember my name

But I do know the way home

 

They think that I’m sleeping

That I’m resting my disordered mind

But I’m really out walking from field to field

 

They say here in the darkening glow

In the sleepless city of the hedgerow

 

Here is where I fit right

Where your mind can flow

Here is where I fit right

Where my mind can flow

 

They’re calling me home

 

I felt it in my body when they closed off the land

They cut down the big tree like they were cutting off my hand

 

They’re calling me home

The starlings and crows

 

I may not remember my name

But I do know the way home

 

The starlings and crows they say

Here in the darkening glow

In the sleepless city of the hedgerow

 

Here is where I fit right

Where my mind can flow

Here is where I fit right

In the leaves of the trees of my home

 

Here is where I fit right

Fit right home 

All Things Good

 

You’ve tasted the rough sea

Now taste the soft and the green

You’ve tasted defeat

Now taste the fruit from the arching tree

 

Feel your way through the hanging vine

Find your way through the cedarwood smoke

Hidden

With me

 

All things that I know love

All things that I do love

All things that I am love

Hold you here

Hold you near

 

Bind you to me with all things good

 

You’ve tasted the dark sea

Now feel the clear waters on your feet

You’ve tasted the sharp salt

Now taste the sweet honey of the wild bees

 

Feel your way through the clinging vines

Find your way through the juniper smoke

Hidden

With me

 

All things that I know love

All things that I do love

All things that I am love

Hold you to me here

Hold you to me near

 

Bind you to me with all things good

Chroma Bather

 

I leave the doors open all summer long

With you

 

Looking at me in every light

You move around me 

Catching colours just right

Finding me is living your life with all the love in every line

Slowly slower holding time

 

Here no-one gets in

It’s just you and me in our watery interior

Outside gets in and inside are the colours of our home

Chroma bather

Chroma lover

 

The summer-light water healing me every afternoon

With you

 

Looking at me in every light

You move around me 

Catching colours just right

Finding me is living your life with all the love in every line

Slowly slower holding time

 

Looking at me in every light

You move around me 

Catching colours just right

Watching you living your life with all the love in every line

Slowly slowly holding time

Remember That Sky

 

Through the mist and the smoke from the fire on the shore

That stays for days in my hair

This was what I wanted

This was care 

and I was there

 

Let’s go back to the start

Remember that sky

Telling you who you are

Reminding you

as we try to understand it all

so far

 

I try to follow your words

I try to remain whole and here 

And with you again

But everything hurts

And people are watching 

and nothing will ever be the same

 

Let’s go back to the start

Remember that sky

Telling you who you are

Reminding you

as we try to understand it all

so far

 

Don’t look back on me

I’ve been alone before 

Give your heart some rest

Don’t be overcome

Let me fight this one

It will be for the best

 

Let’s go back to the start

Remember that sky

Telling you who are

Reminding you

as we try to understand it all

so far

 

so far

Neon Emerald Sequin

 

Tiny lights

Sometimes are all you need

To be bold and bright and glistening

 

All the whispering and judging

I’m not listening

Any more

 

‘Cos now I’m here

I’m not gonna disappear

 

Sometimes I feel just right

Inside my armour I can sparkle

Just a little

 

Tiny lights

Are sometimes all you need

To be bold and glistening bright 

I’m not gonna disappear

 

Reaching out for colour

Opening up to lustre

 

In tears for it all

Forget the regret

‘Cos now

Now I’m here

I’m not gonna disappear

 

‘Cos sometimes I can sparkle

Just a little

Inside

Here Or There

 

This feeling shifting and moving with me

It happens out of the blue

And I can’t pin it down

 

it’s lovely over here

by the gates in sunny fields

don’t be scared it’s not real

don’t be scared

 

Could be real but not quite

It happens out of the blue

And I can’t pin it down

 

it’s lonely in here

it’s lonely you can hear

it’s lonely in here

 

Shifting and moving with me

Could be real but not quite

This feeling’s a memory but not right

 

it’s lovely over here

sunny fields and there’s no fear

sunny fields and I can’t hear

 

A shift in the air and I’m there

Out of the blue

By the gates and sunny fields

This feeling so real

Tall grasses over my head

Soft breezes in my hair

Put my hands out if I dare

Am I here or am I there

Shifting and moving with me

Put my hands out if I dare

Am I here or am I there

Am I real

Looking Glass Lawn

 

Here I lie and there you are

Smiling down

Lifting your crown

 

And scattering gold and glass 

Onto the perfect lawn

 

Are you a witch

Or a facer

A faker

Tiny eyes on your shining gown

A flicker of a frown

Under moon-white powder

 

Do you want me

Or can I reach down

Into the earth

And keep my secrets 

Safe

 

I love to go under and through 

 

Will you let me

Show my face to you?

 

My true face

 

To you

 

Will you catch me

Smiling down
