When We Had Only Our Skin and the Sky

For Maher. I cherish our talks.


“When We Had Only Our Skin and the Sky” – Recorded 1/16/2021 – Auroraboros – Objects, and the Distance Between Them

There was a voice, and we listened,
When we had only our skin and the sky.

There was a flame, and we warmed ourselves by it,
When we had only our skin and the sky.

There was a well, and we drew from its depths,
When we had only our skin and the sky.

There was a stone, and we built upon it,
When we had only our skin and the sky.

There was a firmament, and we watched it with rapt eyes open…
When we had only our skin and the sky.

There was a truth, and we knew it…
When we had only our skin and the sky.
