Susurrant ― soft murmuring or whispering.

Something unexpected emerging and evolving spontaneously from itself.

The overlooked inkling; the subdued realisation; the emergent detail.

Impermanent, transient, evanescent.

Track Name: Aubade
What light
Caresses the hills
And peaks its face
From behind the trees

Such a light
Illuminates bountifully
And sends its bud
Into sweet effloresce

Such a light
Colours the bleak
And with fervour ever fleeting
Lends figure to the shapeless

Such a light
Reveals the inconspicuous
And then slow and softly casts its glow
To gently wake the sleeping soul
Track Name: Sciamachy
There was a time
When a darkness consumed my mind
There was a time
So restless in the clutches of the the broken light
There was a time
My thoughts had strayed so far that I could barely sleep the night
There was a time
It felt as though my buoyancy had finally passed its prime
There was a time...

There was a time
There was a time
There was a time

And I've made peace with my misdirection
It's a part of me that's not to be misunderstood
A weakness doesn't make you, it just makes a home until
You decide to help yourself
Track Name: Wandrers
Above all summits
It is calm
In all the treetops
You feel scarcely a breath
The birds in the forest are silent
Just wait
Soon, you will rest as well

Over all the hills
Peace comes anew
The woodland stills all through
The birds make no sound on the bough
Wait a while
Soon now
You will rest as well
