Time Planners

 

Were we to run the clocks instead,

We’d plan the world as dreamers do,

With moments set aside for sleep,

The rest carved up for us to use.

 

The hardest hours would be the ones

Where necessary chores were shared.

Remunerations would be paid

In week-ends stretching on for months.

 

And soon we’d lose all sense of time,

And clocks would tick ‘til batteries died,

And light and night would merge and mix.

 

And soon we’d lose all sense of us,

As married day and married dark,

Would form our perfect, timeless heart.

Song 7: Do You Realize???

 

A universe of bursting mass,

And circling, cycling lives and deaths:

Repeating forms, forever on,

All came to stop that rainy day.

 

Confetti scattered, Solent salt,

Balloons and cakes and Tennyson:

I’ve never been as scared or proud.

Your strength and beauty linked in gold.

 

The planet span about our day:

Our photos placed that point in time.

The sun would never set again.

Our memory had merged as dreams.

 

And arm in arm we took those steps,

Then floated through the ocean breeze.

 

The Isle of Wight where we heard Do You Realize??? by The Flaming Lips.
