Sketches and obfuscate words
Evanescent meaning
Capture our patience like crosswords
Underneath our dreaming
Stars and moon are our witness
Test of our cerebral fitness
Stars and moon
Stars and moon
Litmus test for they’re so fearless

Sketches and obfuscate words
Grafitti more or less
Faith of a soldier’s passwords
Breaking silence I guess
Hours spent not to lose meaning
Verecund voice good for dreaming
Hours spent
Hours spent
Deeper meaning heart convening

Sketches and obfuscate words
They’re crying out softly
Waking up by the sound of birds
Listen to them warmly
Do they carry weight or ignore?
Do we see the world like before?
Do they carry?
Do they carry?
Do we clean them up or want more?*

* The Trijan Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of three 9-line stanzas, for a total of 27 lines. Line 1 is the same in all three stanzas, although a variation of the form is not to repeat the same line at the beginning of each stanza. In other words, the beginning line of each stanza can be different. The first four syllables of line 5 in each stanza are repeated as the double-refrain for lines 7 and 8. The Trijan Refrain is a rhyming poem with a set meter and rhyme scheme as follows:

Rhyme scheme: a/b/a/b/c/c/d,d refrain of first 4 words of line five /c

Meter: 8/6/8/6/8/8/4,4 refrain/8
