"Tomorrow In A Year" as written by Karin Elizabeth Dreijer Andersson, Olof Bjorn Dreijer and Matthew Sims....
An intersection of the plain
by the bank of some great stream

the animal carcasses
and skeletons would be
entombed

Tomorrow in a year
tomorrow in a million years

Ages resting in
the rings of a tree.
Fossils in lay in slate
marking the old forest’s edge

I’ve stood on a mountain
dividing three regions.
Then it was just a pebble
that I held inside my hand

In between each flap
of a butterfly’s wings,
countless changes
that have gone on unnoticed

A cricket rubs it’s forewings
together and I am forced
to think of the time that it’s taken
to build

Mountains fossils
Larva lava

An Algae moves through water.
Ages move across epochs.
There’s grandeur in this view,
a constant succession

cupping the soil
within my hands
it teams with life
these endless forms
my heart beats 70
times per minute
stretching out over years
a wilderness

layer on layer life embedded in stone
stretching out before me
a wilderness

moments in motion song, heartbeat and breath
