Black

Throbbing drum beats

and numbing numbered chants

Be still my heart

And let the darkness spread

Over days, months and years

a deafening silence still

I wait

hopelessly hopeful hopelessly hopeful.

Now it is dark

…it is black

In the still waters I float

I float

I float

I float

A flutter, a chirp

A whisper in my ear

‘Build on colours you cannot see

not hold

not hear

Sing and dance

Rejoice

and remain

You are time abandoned

And stillness claimed.’
