Bonny Lad and Lass
Mirrors reflecting darkness
Bring the bonny lad to his lass,
Like coats left in the corner,
When the rain has come to pass.
But the bonny lad misplaced the lass
In a dream upon the sea,
Amid waves of things as they were before,
And stormy yet-to-bes.
Two shadows fell together
silently – yet alone,
With arms reaching outward,
for the same place at different times.
The dream ended
as the ship set sail,
Leaving a question (unasked)
Mirrors reflecting sunlight
Distinguish bonny lad from lass,
The coats serve their usefulness,
with the corner free at last.
Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.
Peace be with you.
