The Further Sermons of Father McKenzie 13 A Seduction of....mp3 A Seduction of…. (Souls?)

One hand placed in another hand
which gently clasps, in no hurry to let go.
Understood as they understand.
Tuned into each other’s cues to lead or follow.

There’s walking & there’s sitting down.
There’s sadness but there is comfort & there’s even laughter.
She likes his smile.  He likes her frown.
They hold no expectations of what might come after.

Eyes meet.  They’re slow to look away.
Blushes & smiles form when at last they separate.
Silence though there’s much to say

- tales of dungeons which echo & reverberate.

Revealed scars, scared, shared, cared instead.
Don’t know what to do next...  They find they sort of do know.
Memories of yesterday’s dark dread
replaced by cautious new hopes for tomorrow.

Tomorrow is another day.

Cold light dawns.  No-one knows which way the wind will blow.
Crystal balls blink their blank display.
We watch.  We wait.  We will Fate’s dice a welcome throw.

Composer: Ed Hooke
Written & recorded in the first week of December 2018.

This timescale must be some sort of record for me.

“Tomorrow is another day.”  
(Repeated line in the film “Du Levande” (“You, the Living”)).

A meeting of… souls?

Dedicated to… (the other soul).  The throw of Fate’s dice turned out to not be the one I had hoped for, but one which nevertheless proved welcome in a different way.

“What strange music!  It sounds like the sound track of a horror movie.  The poetry is beautiful, sensitive and perceptive.”              [Zara, Lahore}

“Horrific”      [Sara, Baghdad]
