Autumn Sky from the Train
(Write a Letter to My Sisters)


Oh the serene sky
Can I be a part of you?

Equal to the land beneath you
Gently floating above
The soft and quiet lake

It catches my breath
This stark autumn beauty
Knowing I have no belonging
And attached to no-one

I’m not building roads or bridges
Just digging further underground
But not finding gold
The sky continues
I will find peace

Who are you sisters?
Where were you then?
I can’t justify my existence
It just never adds up
To:  mouths to feed, constant illness
Or disease
