At The End

Day 14 Month 5 - 13 Moon Calendar


Audio/Video

at the end

awake, asleep, adrift in light
from Sun and Moon and in the night
when dreams are rising like the tide
away away away we ride

we dream awake
we wake in sleep
we're always here
we always keep

re-emerging from the mist
when all around in dreams we're kissed
by love returning flowing through
you to me, through me to you

there's no one here we do not know
no place unknown, nowhere to go
no one's alone, no one's apart
we're all one right from the start

we are one in the between
and at the end we rise like steam
from warming Sun, its morning kiss
on dew soaked hills with haze and mist

we drift away, awake, asleep
away away away we keep
re-emerging, coming back
on and on there is no lack

of starts and ends and in betweens
awake, asleep, adrift in dreams
with love returning, flowing through
you to me, through me to you

there's no one here we do not know
no place unknown, nowhere to go
no one's alone, no one's apart
we're all one right from the start

we are one in the between
and at the end we're astral beams
awake, asleep we're filled with light
shining like the stars at night

and dreams abound as planets do
and the sparks as love flows through...

no saviour

Day12 Month 5 - 13 Moon Calendar

video

Audio/Video


no saviour

let go of fingers, eyes and lips
let go the tension body grips
let go of thoughts, ideas, beliefs
let go of wanting, desire's reefs

on which we're stranded - tide is out
let go of panic, do not shout
for a saviour, for someone
to rescue us as we become

awake while floating drifting higher
away up high above mind's fire
above the turmoil and the heat
the very sour, the ultra sweet

let go of all these words which flow
from me to you to me they go
let go of daytime and too night
let go of darkness in the light

awake and floating, drifting higher
filled with wonder, never tire
never grasp what's been released
as we expand to god from beast

let go of panic, do not shout
there's no saviour hereabout
there's no one to rescue us
when we let go we must each trust

while we're waking, floating higher
away up high above mind's fire
above the turmoil and the heat
the very sour, the ultra sweet

let go of all these words which flow
from me to you to me they go
let go of daytime and too night
then all that's left is sparkling light...

there's more

Day 12 Month 5 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

there's more

the breath of life
the engine's roar
the thoughts we think
we're on the shore

we're on the edge of something new
from red to green and then to blue
colours dripping then they splash
sparkling spectral showers flash

glistening glints from heaven gleam
we're transformed by what we've seen
by what we've heard, the silence too
penetrating me and you

penetrating all around
endless mesmerizing sound
thoughts in words they seem to sing
rhythm throbs in everything

in every one, in every place
in every moment as we race
from where we were to where we'll be
passing through while flying free

you touch me and I touch you
we come close and then pass through
we penetrate the all around
as we expand, we are not bound

we are not trapped in the before
when we let go, pass through the door
colours dripping then they splash
sparkling spectral showers flash

glistening glints from heaven gleam
we're transformed by what we've seen
we're on the edge, we're on the shore
there's more to come, there's more there's more...

Snow Is Falling

Day 11 Month 5 - 13 Moon Calendar

Audio/Video

Snow Is Falling

snow is falling on the mountains
snow is falling on the sea
snow is falling on the city
snow is falling here on me

this is not a place of whiteness
this is not a place of ice
'though today the snowy brightness
looks so pretty and so nice

we who live here by the ocean
birds and seals and people too
are covered in a morning blanket
crystalizing all we view


snow is falling from the grey clouds
snow is falling through the air
snow is falling on the green grass
on the trees and everywhere
