Triumphant Rains

by Blanket Swimming

subscriber exclusive
containing a lovely essence called by some decay by this lovely presence new life finds its way wish between waters that contain everything known that remains still here realized where it is with my feet deeply buried planted as part of the ground the water the air the trees became how it always was
welcoming a cold surface then running back to words left that haven't been spoken but do not waiver to be a long time since April came two years ago the ground thawed so did the surface while we sat peacefully unharmed in the cool air that was us
Light Masked 03:28
Philomela - written by Cole Beaune
Swallows the night A rain fall makes its own Way down the softness Liquid drops throughout And in a city street A quiet thump without It's final release can Cause reminiscence of The day of the flood A day when triumphant rains Fell upon dried up days


Recorded, mixed, and mastered between May-October 2017.
