At the edge of the field The light bends a gateway into shape And this is where I unearth you So guarded, yet open and fey Butterflies cycle downwards To another plane Ambiguity, the gauzy silk surrounding everything Clarity could either free me or dissolve the chrysalis Meizja, come away Where the silence resonates Meizja, come away Here the empty garden waits And maybe we can bloom here too The wind will remember your sage Impermanence pulls me through I'm chasing the river away A thousand voices cycle upwards And become the rain Are we just a new beginning gathered for an old collection? Am I just another seedling planted at the field's edge? Meizja, come away Where the silence resonates Meizja, come away Here the empty garden waits Meizja, come to me Where the silence celebrates Meizja, come to me At the empty garden's gate

It's like holding on to dreams as they evaporate When morning comes and pulls me back to you Your smile washes over me Eyes overflowing sunlit glee And when we rise among the hills, the breeze is warm with you The shining fields elysian below Skipping together, dream to dream Breath-giving unreality Currents and forces Lifting us skyward Sunshine enfolds us Gliding and diving Down into another dream as it evaporates Singing, melting forward, time drains into Whirlpools in the deep-swirling sea New colors spinning endlessly Currents and forces We can't swim away from Waves shape a shoreline Sand giving way Currents and forces Time blurring past us Holding the edges Joy found in letting go

I am a raven Learning the sky You, underwater Deep, holding tight Open to shadow Open to light Send me your shadows Blend with our light I'm underwater Reaching my hands You are a raven Looking to land Open to shadow Open to light Send you my shadows Blend with our light Down to the surface Pour in the night Up to the surface Pour out the light
