… so much for my life right now

there are so many things happening, shifting, falling into place
and even though I can't sit down and watch the leaves falling
I still stand here, transfixed, petrified by the beauty there is
for I can't move when I stare and can't stare when I move
must reflect, ponder, philosophise
when everything's keeping me on my legs
never sitting still - silent moments ?
of business and deeds they are charged
no quiet harp but loud, deafening chords on a guitar
when I play in the night, singing low, intricate sounds
finally reaching my heart

there are things to happen
bronze lines join
lightning shuns me as I walk
run, all the way to the seafront to have my ears
filled with the sound of crushing waves
