Modern English

Modern English (sometimes New English as opposed to Middle English and Old English) is the form of the English language spoken since the Great Vowel Shift in England, completed in roughly 1550. more »

dreaming in a chair, contemplating 
the times gone by - exhilarating, entertaining 
reaching out with tenderness 

scenes of laughter framed in reminiscence 
catch a smile for stormy days and sad occasions 
moving targets and camera shy 

the moon is dark and shadowed 
the sun keeps ticking by 
silence and solitude 
no one left to cry 
no one left to cry 
 
 standing in front a mirror 
I draw and pinch my skin 
tired eyes portray reality 
a face of lines which melt in the world 

I am oak 
I am oak 
I am oak 
I am oak
