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...

No Big Bang

Day 2 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

No Big Bang

Siberia's a state of mind
filled with all the things we find
when the vastness of the land
dwarfs us like small grains of sand

like poplar seeds blown in the wind
who we thought we were we've been
and in this moment we become
greater than we thought, we're one

with this haze of air near ground
with un-heard noise, electric sound
unseen fingers from afar
filling space between each star

in twisted coils the currents flow
from beyond the dark halo
galactic ghosts there dwell unseen
ultra-violet x-ray steam

on and on there is no end
no big bang, no beginning when
time began with no before
the priests of science and religion's law

evaporates like morning dew
in never ending me and you
when the vastness of the land
dwarfs us like small grains of sand

like poplar seeds blown in the wind
who we thought we were we've been
and in this moment we become
greater than we thought, we're one...

Sacred Sea

Day 1 Month 4 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

SACRED SEA 


the Sacred Sea is older than
all the time here spent by man
deeper than the deepest thought
the Sacred Sea to each has brought

a hint of all the times now gone
and times to come where we'll belong -

the Sacred Sea is purity
from very deep, the way to be
like our souls in spirit formed
flowing through our egos born

into this world before we leave
we feel its breath in lives we weave
the patterns left when we return
to the place for which we yearn

to the place in between
when awake and when we dream -

the Sacred Sea extends beyond
the lives we live of which we're fond
a hint of all the times now gone
and times to come where we'll belong -

the Sacred Sea is purity
from very deep, the way to be
like our souls in spirit formed
flowing through our egos born

into this world before we leave
we feel its breath in lives we weave...

Spirit

Day 28 Month 3 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

spirit 

spirit rises, spirit falls
spirit flows on, spirit calls
spirit blows from sea to land
spirit grows here where we stand

spirit's unseen and unheard
spirit soars just like a bird
high above the ground below
slipping into space it goes

spirit breathes us in and out
it never leaves us here about
on this planet here on Earth
spirit's with us from our birth

spirit's with us when we dream
and when we wake it's spirit's steam
all around us like a mist
electrifying with its kiss

we rise up and we fall down
sometimes we float, sometimes we drown
in the deep dark ocean mind
spirit saves us every time

spirit flows through where we stand
spirit tows us from the land
from the realm of gravity
spirit lifts both you and me

spirit rises, spirit falls
spirit flows on, spirit calls
spirit blows from sea to land
spirit grows here where we stand

spirit's unseen and unheard
spirit soars just like a bird
high above the ground below
slipping into space we go...

Permeating

Day 26 Month 3 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video
permeating

I love to feel your fingertips
I love to feel your breath
I love to feel your body's heat
from dawn until the death

of another day here by the coast
of another day by the sea
of another day in this paradise
where you are with me -

I love to know your deepest thoughts
to know your inner mind
to feel you when your heart beats fast
to be with you out of time

I love to see the light within
shining through your eyes
illuminating everything
as your spirit flies -

I love to lie down by your side
I love to love you so
there's nowhere else I'd rather be
there's nowhere else to go

we are one 'though we are two
you are all around
permeating all my dreams
soul's angelic sound -

another day here by the coast
another day by the sea
another day in this paradise
where you are with me
