Mixed feelings

Mix, John Lyons (oil on canvas)

Mixed feelings

That morning stillness
           just woken from sleep
coffee in hand
           gaze through the window
a light winnowing breeze
           moves through the trees
birds tuning up
           for their morning chorus
a glorious day ahead
           blue skies and sunshine

and hope in leaps and bounds
           what passes is not love
whatever passes
           let it go : whoever passes
through your life
           let them go too
love never ever passes
           love remains

today I will mix paints
           and apply them to canvas
today I will mix words
           and apply them to paper
today I will make music
           with a mixture of notes
love never passes
           love remains

John Lyons
