Weaver Fish

Weaver Fish by Bel Blue

Words , Vocals, Guitar, Bel Blue,  Sea Sounds, Ogmore Beach

A little song-poem project ruff, I recorded on an mini ipad in 2015, with mobile video taken this summer at Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales. Playing my big old acoustic on this song poem, all recordings and video made on mobile apps. I enjoyed this project and given the opportunity would like to explore more in collaboration and better technology. I collected the wave sounds at Ogmore beach, vale of Glamorgan, and the chimes from a bedroom mobile. Weaver Fish are found much further down the estuary, in the Bristol Channel at very low tide, thankfully as a family, we have only ever had one encounter, in the Gower many years ago.

Weaver Fish

There is a moment

when I’m not pushing

and you’re not pulling

when the ebb and flow has peaked

a moment when high water

sits still before she turns

a pause when she sets low

and the weaver fish returns

returns

and the weaver fish returns

Buried beneath the sands

he lies in wait and my love

we tread slow and my love

we tread low

careful of the spikes

the spikes below

careful of the moment

the moment when

love speaks

when love speaks

In this moment

Is this love

is this love

is this love

In this moment

when we speak

Is this love

Is this love

Is this love (repeat)

When we speak Is this love.
