Choka – Love (In the Dark and the Shadows)


Choka – Love (In the Dark and the Shadows)

We are like two trees

Standing centuries apart

Sharing the same moon

Sighing together each dawn

Drenched by summer rains

Trembling as our leaves fall

Winter strips us bare

And wind gives rise to our song

Darkness cloaks us both

And our branches can’t quite reach

But deep underground

We have sought each other out

Our roots entangled

No beginning and no end

Like secret lovers

Clinging fast to each other

In the dark and the shadows

      1. I dreamed about it last night – then wrote it on the bus to work (largely) – thought about it all day – and tonight tweaked it a little bit until it felt right – I’m glad it does!
