Beat A Drum

The sun reflected in
The back of my eye.
I knocked my head against the sky.

The dragonflies are busy buzzing me.
A seahorse as if we were in the sea.

Half way from coal
Half way from diamond.
My fall knocked a mean chip out of me.
Gathering as far as I can reach.
Perched up on a precipice
And this is what I’ve seen.

This is all I want,
It’s all I need.
This is all I am.
This is all I want,
It’s all I need.

A bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree.
Doctorate in science and a theologians dream

The dragonflies are trying to lecture me.
The seahorses as if we were in the sea.

But this is all I want,
It’s all I need.
This is all I am,
It’s everything.
This is all I want,
It’s all I need.

Beat a drum for me
Like a butterfly wing.
Tropical storm across the ocean.

But don’t explain I’m sure I’ll want to know
Don’t forget we’re just half way from coal.

This is all I want,
It’s all I need.
This is all I am,
It’s everything.
This is all I want,
It’s all I need.
