Wore It Deep

from by The Tree Ring



The wind came like voices in the afternoon
With the scotchbroom waving gold in bloom
And the river wore the sky's deep blue
So we wore it deep too

The day turned to leave us but we held it in
You could see it red inside our skin
Turning white beneath our fingerprints
And hot against cotton of bedsheets and garments
Under a sea of stars we're both dark from ours

The morning sang slowly to a different tune
With the sky tired in a blustery blue
We woke up tired and blustery too
Heads in the deepest grey
Swallowed up by the daybreak
And dressed in our oldest memories, grateful

All the light in our homes
Forms all we know
Buried in moments between moments
Is the color of hope
