Sunday drivers

I would sooner be ex-
posed with a friend,
than complacent with

Heraclitus says of them, The Eyes and ears are bad witnesses for men with barbarian souls. 

I doubt that one could witness them without some diurnal practice with a nearer one.     

                  The lark's breast will open to 
                    the light
                  And a song will hang suspended
                    in mid-air
                  Sowing the four winds
                  With golden grains of fire

                  Liberating earth's beauty.
