When my mind wanders
It drifts away to memories
Lost in childhood dreams

Hanging On

The winds are blowing
We’re hanging on by a thread
The times are changing

Slowly unfurling
Rising to meet the new day
To stretch out from sleep

Half-mourner morning
Rising up through the knapweed
Watching the watcher
