Weightless Souls

weightless souls, a photo by gomagoti on Flickr.

we slept like dogs

down by the fireside

or woke to the fog

where all around us, the boom of summer died.

hot sand on toes

cold sand in sleeping bags

i come to know

the friends around you, are all you’ll always have

smoke in my lungs

all over the echoed stone

careless and young

free as the birds that fly, with weightless souls.

(Ben Howard, Old Pine. One of the loveliest songs I’ve ever heard).

Painting by moi, watercolours on 300gsm arches paper.
