    lyrics, musical
    wisps of hair across the brow
    breeze-swaying to night
    “Words are only painted fire. A look is the fire itself.”

    - Mark Twain

    Breeze swaying to night
    Dreams summoned by gleaming moon
    Mind's midnight marvel

    mind's midnight marvel
    cricket minutes chirping by
    serene loneliness
    “Words are only painted fire. A look is the fire itself.”

    serene loneliness
    biting through beauty of a
    vast delirium

    vast delirium
    footless sleepers in summer
    babies that won't cry
    “Words are only painted fire. A look is the fire itself.”

    Babies that won't cry
    release of sorrow heals all
    Do not fear your tears

    Do not fear your tears
    For they are the blood of souls
    Let them flow freely

    Let them flow freely
    gush fully and run madly
    only to stumble
    If I'd had more time, I'd have written a shorter letter. Mark Twain

    Only to stumble
    seven times, getting up eight.
    The sages would smile.

    Your line made me think of a Japanese proverb, which stresses the importance of perseverance.

    七転び八起き (Nanakorobi Yaoki)

    If you stumble seven times, get up eight.

    a ringmaster's perfection
    loving without doubt

    Loving without doubt
    Mallards glide on Molly’s Pond --
    Six ducklings in tow.

    Six ducklings in tow,
    a snippet of summer love
    and a lifetime yet

    and a lifetime yet
    yesterday's morning drizzle
    a day's share of dew

    a day's share of dew:
    a moment's pure reflection
    spikes our glassy lives

    Seeds resting in garden soil,
    awaiting warm rain.

    Awaiting warm rain
    frozen, blind, and insecure
    Who was I again?

    but which lifetime was it then?

    The time for growth is so short--
    Bloom where you’re planted

    Bloom where you’re planted
    wilt when monkey mind expands
    nectar or poison?

    Love or further dead ends? The
    road to hell awaits.

    the door to evil is sealed
    my life is open
