Whiteflower Bay

Day 14 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

Whiteflower Bay

the ghosts of ships and war long gone
the cries of gulls where they belong
in Whiteflower Bay along with me
by the living breathing sea -
the air's tiptoeing from the east
like some invisible prowling beast
hurrying by where ghosts live on
carrying off the gulls loud song -
the sky above is curtained by
blue grey clouds which bump and vie
for the space which once seemed blue
as Sun climbs up but out of view -
the tide has left the shore exposed
an easy feast for all of those
gulls and ravens living near
the ghosts of war here by the pier -
Sunday morning city stirs
awaking slowly life occurs
by the ocean bay with me
in the living breathing sea -
deep in space a planet's found
beyond beyond the all around
a new day dawning in the way
we must view the place we stay -
we believe we think we know
then we find there's more below
there's more above there's more within
than we believed as we all spin -
beyond beyond the all around
deep in space is where we're found
hurrying by where ghosts live on
like cries of gulls we all belong ...

Every Time I Think of You

Day 12 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

 every time I think of you

the wind skips over waves it blows
through trees whose branches bend
every time I think of you
my thoughts on wind I send -

the sound of gulls the smell of sea
the air feels warm on skin
every time I send a thought
it's wrapped in sweet love-ing -

the sunlight dances on the sea
shimmering before
illuminating all around
it's you whom I adore -

the Moon is up although it's day
whispering night dreams
whether dark or whether light
to you I send love beams -

time flows by without a pause
thoughts flow by as well
every time I think of you
is like a tinkling bell -

penetrating where I am
what I do and feel
angelic voices singing sweet
songs of your appeal -

in my heart there is a place
where you always dwell
even though we are apart
you are near as well -

the wind skips over waves it blows
through trees whose branches bend
every time I think of you
my thoughts on wind I send...

Feelings

Day 10 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar






Audio/Video


feelings

inside I know you think of me
my head,my heart and deeper the
vortex feeling swirling 'round
I know it's you just like the sound

of angels singing flying by
over head and heart in sky
brushing lightly wind from wings
soul awakening spirit sings -

inside I know you feel me too
in head and heart and deeper too
magnetic forces pull on souls
closer like two different poles

there is no greater force to feel
than this compelling soul appeal
dwelling always deep within
no matter where our egos swim -

inside I feel your heart beat fast
knowing that true feelings last
beyond this lifetime and before
beyond the next and evermore

inside we're one outside we're two
although apart I am with you
you are with me when I wake
and in my dreams where we both make

soul awakening melodies
intertwining we are free
to become much closer than
any woman any man -

inside I know you think of me
my head,my heart and deeper the
vortex feeling swirling 'round
I know it's you just like the sound

of angels singing flying by
over head and heart in sky
brushing lightly wind from wings
soul awakening spirit sings...

Breathe

Day 9 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

breathe

breathe                           
deep within the atmosphere
we live, we love
what we hold dear -

breathe                           
within our dreams
as they unfold
both when young
and too when old -

breathe                           
every morning
when we rise
the air is clear
so too the skies -

breathe                           
thoughts flow by
on torrents born
from our egos
they are torn -

breathe                           
sensations whirl
as feelings spin
a constant motion
deep within -

breathe                           
we become
both sour and sweet
what we imbibe
and what we eat -

breathe                           
with all the beings
of the Earth
we share it all
from death to birth -

breathe                           
in each mind
and in each heart
each breath we take
a brand new start -

breathe                           
deep within
galactic space
is where we live
where we keep pace -

breathe                           
deep within the atmosphere
we live, we love
what we hold dear -

breathe                           
within our dreams
as they unfold
both when young
and too when old -

breathe                           
sensations whirl
as feelings spin
a constant motion
deep within -

breathe                           
deep within
galactic space
is where we live
where we keep pace -

breathe....

Simple Beauty

Day 7 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

Simple Beauty

the sky is clear, no clouds no mist
the sea is blue from Sun's warm kiss
the air is filled with morning sounds
simple beauty all surrounds -

my heart beats fast, I feel your touch
though far away it means so much
I smell the sea I think of you
because we're joined just out of view -

above the air, the atmosphere
electric space is always near
we spin we turn from time to time
we live we learn there's more to find -

becoming new with each breath
which we inhale from birth to death
we disappear as we awake
rising up once more we shake

off the darkness of old thought
what we believed, what we were taught
it's not the way we're meant to be
living life, both you and me -

the sky is clear, no clouds no mist
the sea is blue from Sun's warm kiss
the air is filled with morning sounds
simple beauty all surrounds -

So Sweet

Day 6 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

so sweet

every moment which we share
minutes, lifetimes fill the air
fill the ether's magic touch
step by step I feel so much

anticipation, vibrating
visions in my mind, waiting
for the moment when we meet
in the morning, it's so sweet

all is more than you and me
although we both act carefully
I know you know I love you
you know I feel the way I do

my heart singing oh so lightly
looking forward, dreaming nightly
in the morning when we meet
there is no moment quite so sweet

Death at Sea

Day 3 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

Death at Sea

while drifting on the ocean
while floating on the sea
moved by the gentle motion
as waves roll under me

the air, its soft caresses
the Sun, its warm embrace
my pain becoming less as
the smell of sea I taste -

on the distant shoreline
mountains rising to the sky
from my heart and from my mind
now I begin to fly

above the ocean's endless
heaving breathing deep
between white clouds I wend as
I rise as if from sleep -

from a world of shadows
into universal light
what I believed I had so
close and held so very tight

evaporates like mist at dawn
when Sun climbs into sky
away from Earth again reborn...
what it's like to die

while drifting on the ocean
while floating on the sea
moved by the gentle motion
waves rolling under me...
