Treasure Island

Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Sunset


The light house shines as a beacon
To the travelers at sea
Staring up at our dismembered constellations
Where there's a shadow
There is always light
Standing at the oceans edge
The tide takes the worries with it
I can hear them dancing in the rain
Thundering in the clouds
Cries and screams are drowned
Carried away with a seizing wing
Delicate butterflies float along the sunset
As the sky turns from blue to pink
A picture painted by a delicate hand
And ever so slowly
The sun falls
Leaving a silver moon in its wake

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
