Passage of Time

De Arco,
Summer of Content,
Assonance,
Radiating through,
Passage of time,
Music Terms,
Moving through,
Mists papilla reborn,
Into a new skin torn,
Out of pages Forlorn,
The music of our ancestors in lines,
drawings recordings,
Songs need physical reality,
To papilla wakanha,
Moving through mists,
Deciphering reality,
Through a different sense,
The mists of the past come back to cleanse,
To heal to mend,
Wakaymali,
To sing to cause to dance,
Wakanhawinanga,
dances of listening,
Listening to truth,
Through our songs and stories,
The land is our proof,
Of our resilience,
In our songs we cry Out to the sky,
Biame,
The land reflected in our eyes,
Passage of time,
Passage of Blood,
Hears and echoes throughout the bay,
Can you live when faced by death,
beat of the heart created from,
Heat in our lungs,
Like the time in our sleep,
When we dream of azure days,
out of pain and deceit,
Violins sound like drums in this cosmopolitan piece composed out of here,
Passage of time.
