Something in Between

* This is one of the first lyrics I wrote, written in the late 1980’s or early 90’s. I did some revisions recently and have the guitar ready to go for my next podcast…. Dark but with ideas of brightness.

***

Sky is endless black and

Stars are forever bright

My eyes fill with fire

Burning in the night

Dancing demons

or Singing angels

These timid strangers lead to unseen dangers

*

My mind drifts deep

As I close my eyes tight

My body falls asleep

As I’m pulled into the night

Spirits fly high

But my body waits below

I fight to free my soul

With everything I know

*

We use our love to conquer all fear

We have gained control

 so We are safe here

Now we lie awake

 but our dreams seem real

The sun

the moon

the Stars

All have our seal

*

Sky is endless black

And the stars are forever bright

My eyes fill with lights like fire

Burning in the night

Dancing demons

or Singing angels

These timid strangers bring our greatest changes

*

My mind journeys deep

Visions glow in the light

My body

I can’t keep

as I’m pulled into the night

Rivers run high

Flames burn far below

I fight to raise our souls

 with everything I know

Listen to the Wind

Before I begin

I stop and listen to the wind

Sweeping through the trees

Cleansing all the leaves

To my core reaching deeper

Into my heart

And in my head

Orange and yellow

And bright red

All now swirling

Winter clean

Into the Earth

Till spring grows green

*

History awakes

A new day breaks

*

It starts to sink in

A cold winter wind

Ripping through trees

Barren of leaves

Now souls reach deeper

Into kind hearts

and into our heads

Wishes we follow

Thoughts left for dead

Moon overturning

Forgotten dreams

Outside the Earth

No season is seen

*

History seems fake

As new stars awake

*

No precedent found

For the sky or the ground

Break through days

Sharing fair ways

No causing pain

For personal gain

No attacks on our peace

Just because movements cease

Support the vulnerable with care

Stay more aware

Difference on the surface

Should not be feared but reassure us

We all deserve to live well

*

Our shared life has begun

And with the river run

Swept into the sea

Surging mystery

Vision getting clearer

Into my heart

And in my head

Once thought shallow

Now deep instead

Ages swirling

Cross-currents mean

Within the Earth

Kind channels clean

*

History is at stake

As a new day breaks

Yours is the Only Promise We Need

I wrote this about artistic inspiration. I am inspired by so many. The folks I invoke here have played a special part recently and for many memorable parts in my life.

***

Forever I remember your name

Your vision

Image

And wishes

No one will ever be the same

Your voice and words are so delicious

Bringing Health

and Courage

and Joy

*

I’m here

and listen for more

Imagining life in peace

The world is at the door

And through a certain slant of light

Yours is the only promise we need

*

As we trade our hours for dimes

Your spirit

Feeling and kind soul

Turn dark days into beautiful times

Weave notes and words into hours mindful

Sharing wellness

Ethics and passion

*

I’m here and listen for more

Way beyond yesterday

The future is at the door

Sent direct

Today is the messenger

Yours is the only promise we need

*

John Lennon and Jim Morrison

One day I’ll make a name for myself

Being true to my nature and fighting for causes

No talent will do the same as

Our Incredible losses

But others share powerful music

Our enduring heart crosses

Bif Naked and The Tea Party band

Working miracles for today’s many bosses🇨🇦

*

The old man down the road

could see the River bending

And in a moment of weakness

gave his soul to the

Commotion

Of all the kaleidoscopes

the best I’ve seen is in

Experimental cost

Focused on wellness

No matter what

And

Free for

Many hours we share together

Loving on

This crystal ship

*
Forever I remember your name

Your vision

And wishes

No one will ever be the same

Your voice and words are so delicious

Bringing Health

and Courage

and Joy

I’m here

Imagining life in peace

Love from Above

We are all fast

We won’t come to a stop

We hold on to some of the past

While the future’s on top

My love please help me keep moving

Right now

Right now keep me moving somehow

Fast

*

We are so alive

Hold on to what we’ve got

For every goal we strive

Love means quite a lot

Come on Love

Help us out

*

Fast as fire

Fast as a river

Fast as our skin moves

if we shake and shiver

At the peak of the moment

Fast as release

Fast as times go by

when we can find peace

*

There’s nothing faster than action

Driven by love

There’s nothing more for sure than

Love from above

And still the world

Can’t get enough

*

Fast as lightening

Fast as hard rain

Fast as thoughts move

If we’re going insane

At the peak of chaos

Fast like a beast

Fast as times we hide

And hope to find peace

Theres nothing faster than dreams

Driven by love

There’s nothing more for sure than

Love from above

And still the world

Can’t get enough

*

We are all fast

We won’t come to a stop

We hold on to some of the past

While the future’s on top

My love please help me keep moving

Right now

Right now keep me moving

somehow

*

We are so alive

Hold on to what we’ve got

For every goal we strive

Love means more than a lot

Come on Love

Come out on top

Worth Mention

Where are all

the people that care?

I know some do

But in the big scheme of things

Many seem unaware

Or unable and preoccupied

I try to reach out to help

The world seems to hide

It’s like we need wicked pride to just get attention

As if when we’re not elected or promoted

We’re not even worth mention

*

Where are all the people that care?

I know some do

But in the big picture

Many seem so unfair

Or unfocused and mystified

I try to reach out to help

But the world denies

It’s like we need a famous light to just get attention

As if public intelligence without spectacle

Is not even worth mention

*

So I keep shouting

And make a big production

If you can’t hear us now

Maybe soon you will

What I can’t understand

Is all the deep doubting

To cause health reduction

To other’s words you’ll never bow

Maybe soon you will

Realize you can understand

Ways to learn about being

Safe and well

with our kind introduction

*

It’s about peace of mind

We can’t find it without you

It comes from inside

And it is all about you

The outside world depends on your action

Now that they’ve found you

The energy grounds you

Together now

or alone

A healthy mood with Peace in mind

Determines everything that’s known

*

Where are all

the people that care?

I know you do

But when it comes down to it

Many will not dare

So unstable and stupefied

Stop and stare

Try to reach out to help

But the world has lied

It’s like we need to be crucified to just get attention

As if when we’re not subjected and devoted

We are not even worth mention

*

So I keep praying

And make a big production

If you can’t hear us now

Maybe soon you will

What I can’t understand

Is why kind plans are decaying

This is Peace reduction

To equitable words you’ll never bow

Maybe soon you will

Realize you can understand

Ways today to start being

Safe and well

with our kind introduction

*

This is how good things happen

Yes we protect our world

But we reach out to others

Keep our sacrifice healthy

Until we can make another

Introduce the current moment

Stay true to who we are

Don’t jeopardise the future

Instead build it up

The more we keep it together

The better life we share

***

Different

Sometimes if we’re different

We make unusual comments

like how we make it through

to get past our hard days

With more than a few

We may challenge social norms

If in life we feel injured

We try to choose smart ways

But in a mood that’s incurred

Karma’s conflicting storms

Can consume all our days

*

Sometimes if we’re different

We have unusual visions

that help us make it through

to get past our bad days

Although it’s nothing new

We may hope for more warmth

But in life run through the wringer

We strive to choose ways to save

With tones calm and cool like a singer

Karma’s kindness forms

Stays true for all our days

*

You tear apart differences

as if searching for a truth

The only difference

is what you’ve learned

Keep it together to improve

One helping clue:

We ARE together

Caught up in the moment

Mood builds from philosophy

And new perspectives we haven’t known yet

Now coming into vision

Just because we’re different

*

Sometimes when we’re different

We make unusual choices

to try to make it through

We get past some tough days

But if we miss a cue

We can fall thru open arms

And life slips through our fingers

It seems we choose rough ways

But in truth illusion lingers

While Karma’s coping charms

Get us through all our days

***

Love All, Serve All

Each day I awake

and before my eyes open

I think of You

You are the LOVE of my life

EVERYONE

EVERYTHING

EVERYWHERE the sun reaches

*


REAL LOVE

That starts like a spark

Breathes life in my heart

And grows in the dark

As it teaches

No preaching

Just feeling

*


REAL LOVE of

EVERYONE

EVERYTHING

EVERYWHERE

*


Real Love is just to care

Find ways to share

Always be fair

*


In a world that is often “Go go go”

Real Love can move

Fast or slow

It grows with our actions

Never just for show

*


Real love is about being aware

Sooner or later

We all win when we care

For Everyone

Everything

Everywhere

*


Deep within the unchecked silence

There are sirens ringing

People suffer neglect or violence

Build Real Love for

Defiance clinging

*


Rules and Ideas of compliance

Like hard-edged diamonds stinging

Fools and Egos deaf and blind as hell

While the alliance of Real Love singing:

Love all

Serve all

*

Each day fades away

And as my eyes close

I think of You

You are the Love of my life

MY ONE and ONLY

EVERYTHING

EVERYWHERE the night falls

*


REAL LOVE

Intensely good path

Breathes Peace in our heart

Lights up the dark

As it reaches out

To all needing

Good feeling

*


And to reach within

Past any fall:

Love All

Serve All
