seed lights

the seed lights

 

Coconut tree from coconut
The seed lights the room with green leaves
We sing, sing, sing our hope of solace and better together
– It works

That present tree brought in got taller when out of hospital
Nothing like a coconut tree but it survived
The wakes and talks and walks
With nobody to talk to, really, but the wind in the trees

I missed your smiles in spring
And your colds in winter
I kept you in mind and you prayed for me, I know, and you knew

Forget the pain that once killed you
Breathe it in and shelter
Are like amnesia words and blather
To myself when I remember the burning fire burns out

I missed your smiles in spring
And your colds in winter
I kept you in mind and you prayed for me, I know, and you knew

Years went by and we got old and died
Some faster than others
Years went by and true colours of blame, guilt and shame
Got hired, again and again, in madness

I missed your smiles in spring
And your colds in winter
I kept you in mind and you prayed for me, I know, and you knew

Sorry I was so busy and working so hard
I should have wrote more letters for you
To keep in your apron when gone
– It worked

Unbelievable love, you were far from being insane
It’s just that this world got too mad to believe it

 

“You first parents of the human race… who ruined yourself for an apple, what might you have done for a truffled turkey?”

– Brillat-Savarin

“I am convinced that a vivid consciousness of the primary importance of moral principles for the betterment and ennoblement of life does not need the idea of a law-giver, especially a law-giver who works on the basis of reward and punishment.”

– Albert Einstein
