Sunlight slowly overcoming treetops
Mixed currents
(Near at hand, still
Next, northeast
Then just out a bit, north westward)

For every perception there are more possibilities than one equal and opposite perception
Pavement crack plants
Gnats conversation
Sudden, forgettable beginning spurring evolution
It takes a word to disturb
Like a top down view of birds flying in a stone spiral topped with The World Egg
White dragon in the sky shedding colors looms morning stroll, and empty street but for heels
Watercourse way, where else?
Wind. Fire. Soil. Mountains are manifestations too
The wind can be seen passing between trees
Rearranged: wind sees between trees passing, wind seas pass tree to tree
After initial plucking, who would put the dawn to sleep?
Who affirms validity? Who reaffirms validity?
A not entirely inhuman, gasp

Buoyancy. Submerging in air we run and think not that we fly for fish fly as birds swim through the ocean of the heavens, whose horizontal matrimony to the earth we guard, Den. A Den we guard half-heartedly.
These voices do not all agree.
Do not all feel equal investment.
At each and every moment.
Yet I feel that any listener can hear a clear desire among all voices present to stay in the boat together and keep the boat afloat.
The flow.
I wish such a spirit could find all humanity waiting and receptive.
There are no sharks in the water

Separately, Brian studied Chinese music in Hong Kong and AJ studied Flamenco in Granada, Spain.
