Signs

In my heart
A burgeoning
Frond

A time to
Clear the
Mind

A clock
Ticking
Through
Lies
Through
Lies

The way things
Are still
Come alive
Alive

Anyway
Anyway

The hands
They fly

On the clock
The ghosts
Tell time

1 2 4 5 6
7 & 9

Where do we stop
How do we go
When do we
Find the
Elements
The signs
