warm rain of summer
fall and wash away the colour
and shake the dirt from my eyes
staring out to the skyline
where i once flew by
and watched below as life revived
we sing with the soil and the pines,
"keep your dream winding to the center"
and dance with the peat and the rinds,
"keep your head hovering in the weather"
how simple how we shift our incline,
"keep your heart running when the end comes"
when compasses and clocks are aligned.
"keep your eyes turning to the summer"
i feel a hunger
burning up from under
my skin and from behind my eyes
warm song of summer
spreading and uncovering
all the joy we've tried to hide
i am only hunger
