The Day that ‘We’ Were Born

The Day that ‘We’ Were Born

We were born into the wind
in days when the sun was young
we found our voice and learned to sing
into the mystic of time begun…

We talked all through the night until first light
an ocean of words slept before the dawn
nothing was left untouched or unsaid
on the day we were reborn…

On the day that we were born, the dynamics of life changed
some things ceased forever, others rearranged
the you and me and destiny
reached out beneath an endless sea of stars
in those days when the sun was young
when we found our voice and learned to sing
into the mystic wind.

You and I

PANTOUM
A poem in a fixed form, consisting of a varying number of four-line stanzas with lines rhyming alternately;
the second and fourth lines of each stanza are repeated to form the first and third lines of the succeeding stanza, with the first and third lines of the first stanza forming the second and fourth of the last stanza, but in reverse order, so that the opening and closing lines of the poem are identical.”

You and I

When the night is spread out against the sky
shadows flying on darkened wing, silhouettes in twilight sighs
let us go then, you and I, and walk in company with the moon
let us go then, you and I, for the night will end too soon.

Shadows flying on darkened wing, silhouettes in twilight sighs
secrets whispered beneath starshine, you and I, hands entwined
let us go then, you and I, for the night will end too soon
and this our only chance to dance beneath the glowing moon.

Secrets whispered beneath starshine, you and I, hands entwined
let us go then, you and I, and walk in company with the moon
and this our only chance to dance beneath the glowing moon
When the night is spread out against the sky.
