Beneath

by Jeremy Hulatt

  • There are days that go unnoticed by the clouds.
  • Storms travel the oceans like whales.
  • And beneath all of that sky
  • Ants carry petals through a still garden.
  • Storms travel the oceans like whales
  • And there are shoulders heavy with rain.
  • Ants carry petals through a still garden –
  • A magnificent bloom to their beautiful woman.
  • There are shoulders heavy with rain
  • And hands heavy with years.
  • Magnificent blooms for beautiful women
  • Grow along the edge of a path through the jungle.
  • Hands heavy with years
  • Open a large pit in the earth.
  • Along the edge of a path through the jungle
  • There are enormous stones.
  • A large pit is opened in the earth.
  • There is a quietness.
  • There are enormous stones.
  • Shadows lie beneath.
  • There is a quietness.
  • A voice hushed under a sigh.
  • Shadows lie beneath
  • Blossoms heavy with light.
  • A voice hushed under a sigh
  • Travels the ocean like a storm.
  • Shadows lie beneath
  • Ants carrying petals through still gardens.
