Like Water Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Chris McClean 2017

Poem by: Dan Crockett

Layers lifting
Moats of light shifting
Spheres of currents dance.
At the heart of the
Wildest storm is silence;
This is old music.
There are paths
Between the reefs,
Promises on the swell and dip.
Truth in droplets of our
Saline blood.
Our bold movement asks questions.
This is a place beyond borders,
Beyond you and me to us.
We are held in sway
As a merging unfolds,
The illusion of separation crumbling.
The glow of living faces falling,
Fine lines and faint traces
To a liquid place outside time
Where all our fences are broken.
Shadows and sunlight
In which we must become whole,
To Live, to breathe, to join.

“Edges of Sanity” by Dan Crockett

“It’s been said

On far shores, weary mariners hear voices

Songs so beautiful they cast a spell

There is no choice but to hear.

They claim these whispers hold a message

Each ear hears different music

But the same call hunts the senses:

Without risk, there is no beauty

Without chance, no adventure

Through suffering, wealth without limit

So we scheme and plan

And tell nobody of our dreams

Shuffle cards, chance vague variables

And tread endless road miles until

Close against cold ground we toss and turn

And summon black water

                 *     *     *

For I am of the waiting deep

The great denier, the poised fist

Stalker of pitch oceans

Whose fingers twist about your throat…

I swallowed the sad pilgrims

Who fell to flat reef, their vessels sunk

Into water bitter as winter night

Beyond the edges of sanity

I am the waiting teeth of the rocks below

The grinning maw in the clouds

Bearer of the hourglass – killer of the short dim day

Who beckons you to dare

*     *     *

The north song does not stop

Power in that promise

Goes beyond common meanings

You have walked in footsteps new

What was before will never be again

But memories of lined faces

And in the glowing after

Breaking bread the sweetest knot

All weight shed – light extraordinary

Until my whisper comes again…

And the future begs your listening

The future begs your listening”
