life
a
bubble,
some have
reasoned
some have
sung
some have
seen,
a bubble
on those
waves of
the wake
and were
it of stuff
we could
take in our
hands,
it would
be a ship
of whispers
in a bottle,
the wisps of
masts raised
along the
miniature
deck,
simply
a bubble
of a ship
in a
bottle!

The music is an arrangement of the Japanese traditional song ‘Sakura’ (Cherry Blossom) by Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, recorded here by the Shinyukai choir on the 1994 album ‘Takemitsu: A Song Of Circles And Triangles – Choral Works’.

  1. ah, yes, the world outside our knowing, true time in which the seconds tick, what hold the darkness medium for light and consciousness!
    think I’ve started a poem for myself again, peter, with the comment.
