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

Lament

Day 25 Month 3- 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video
lament

welling up from where we keep
returning from dark night's deep sleep
the always dreaming tidal rush
now overflowing with its hush

once more arousing me and you
in the morning wondering who
can touch us in this way
as we wake and through the day

the sad lament of beauty cries
from the Earth and from the skies
incandescent morning light
effervescent in the night

like spirit bubbles floating by
we are drifting up on high
currents in the atmosphere
above our sorrows and our fears

above thinking thoughts and wild ideas
which always seem to lead to tears
the sad lament of beauty cries
from the Earth and from the skies

as we wake and through the day
what we feel is here to stay
the always dreaming tidal rush
overflowing with its lush

emotions like the rolling swell
in the ocean like a bell
reverberating on and on
'til we let go and we are gone

like spirit bubbles floating by
we are drifting up on high
currents in the atmosphere
above our sorrows and our fears

above incandescent morning light
and effervescence in the night
above the changes going on
when we let go we all move on

welling up from where we keep
returning from dark night's deep sleep
the always dreaming tidal rush
now overflowing with its hush...

magic dragon

Day 24 Month 3 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

Magic Dragon

molecules of atmosphere
rising, falling everywhere
Sun reflecting off the Earth
tickling air and giving birth

to motions, currents, swirls and drafts
unseen winds and breezy laughs
skipping over ground and sea
skipping over you and me

rushing up the hills to spill
over into valleys filled
with molecules of atmosphere
rising, falling there and here

tiptoeing quickly through the trees
peeka-booing then it flees
never is it standing still
air keeps rushing where it will

Sun reflecting off the ground
tickling air which moves around
molecules of atmosphere
rising, falling everywhere

skipping over ground and sea
air keeps moving wherever we
feel its touch while rushing by
caressing all, the unseen sky

the unseen winds whose breezy laughs
swirl in currents, puff in drafts
bring us all the air we breathe
from when we're born to when we leave

molecules of atmosphere
rising, falling everywhere
Sun reflecting off the Earth
tickling air and giving birth

to motions, currents, swirls and drafts
unseen winds and breezy laughs
skipping over ground and sea
skipping over you and me...
