On repeat

 
 
Why shouldn’t I sing to the stone
or talk to the mountains?
 
because
they’ll call you a crazy old man?
 
maybe
that was the plan all along
perhaps
I am a chorus in the moon song,
 
but they’ll say,
‘you’re talking nonsense,
and I will reply with,
listen to the rainbow
the colours tell the story
and
why shouldn’t I
sing to the stone or
talk to the mountains.
