Treasure Island

On a silent slice of freedom


On a silent slice of freedom
To breathe a pause!
It’s the Soul-child’s approbation-
‘long awaiting flee to blossom!
a verge to break... a pure white lilac
...release of butterflies from the loop!

There we were, hopping on a pink floral cloud!
Picking all kinds of blessings!
Well nourished to be of belonging
But was held, on a mind state that’s kept!
a verge to break... a pure white lilac
...release of butterflies from the loop!

Go a place-of-no-pace...far-away!
With energy drawn from an orange dip!
To pencil-in freedom from a dream
Familiar with life appreciation!
a verge to break... a pure white lilac
...release of butterflies from the loop!

The Soul child is mending the talking
To set off the past
Become drawn to a new dawn!
Of a free peaceful silent slice!
a verge to break... a pure white lilac
...release of butterflies from the loop!

Now on this silent freedom slice,
We took off, our demon gear
To passionately fly beyond
A snip with courage and satisfaction
Ultimately breaking... a pure white lilac
... all butterflies were released from the loop!

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
