Reaching

We always reach for the next big thing.
A place to belong and some meaning to bring.
A cause to campaign for, a light on the scene.
Contentment is something to get, not to be.
We reach for the brass ring, while dawn breaks–unseen!

Compassion

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Refrain:
Your compassion is your humanity!
Let it warm you and set your Spirit free.
It won’t take away anything you need today.
It makes the world brighter, you agree.
Your compassion is your humanity!

1. Many folks are doin’ things
You don’t think they should do.
Well, how about considering
That they have feelings too?
You don’t live the life they’re livin’,
But there’s something you can give them.
Compassion is the key!
Refrain:

2. All the woes and worries
That you get into your head,
From sun up until sundown,
When you’re in and out of bed.
But you can’t see it all,
‘Cause you don’t have a crystal ball.
Compassion is the key!
Refrain:

3. People tell you not to
Think about yourself.
But if you don’t even care,
Then why should anybody else?
Give the gift of time
To your body and your mind.
Compassion is the key!
Refrain:

Be a human now!
Your compassion is your humanity!

A song of the Divine Feminine, Holy Breath, Shekhina–the Holy Spirit. In Essence, She and we are One; so this is an affirmation.

I love as you love.
I give as you give.
I turn as you turn.
I live as you live.

I know as you know.
I form as you form.
I bless as you bless.
I warm as you warm.

For you are me,
And I am you,
The manifesting
Spirit of Truth!

I breathe as you breathe.
I flow as you flow.
I work as you work.
I glow as you glow.

I love as you love.
I give as you give.
I turn as you turn.
I live as you live.

For you are me,
And I am you,
The manifesting
Spirit of Truth!

You are me,
And I am you,
The manifesting
Spirit of Truth!

My First Weaver

The woman was a weaver;
I didn’t know her name.
But then at only 5 years old,
The fascination came.

She sat up straight and sturdy,
The bench just right to reach.
And taking shuttle back and forth,
Her hand began to teach.

I know she pressed the treadles
And showed me cloth that grew.
And with a lesson now forgot,
She made a weaver too!

The woman was a weaver;
I didn’t know her name.
But many years a weaver now,
I thank her all the same!

Wild Wind

Wind howls through my mind,
tearing a treacherous path,
driving, destroying, demolishing…
The calm, cultivated landscape
erodes before me.
What can this mean?
What’s next?
A breeze speaks whisperingly
of a land too close to see.
“Come…”
And through the howling wind,
I go.


Quadrille, 44 words excluding title, containing some form of “whisper.” This one also goes for De’s challenge of “whisperingly.” Try your own and enjoy others at

Let Love

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar
(Capo 1)

1. Love’s the greatest Power we will ever know.
It made the earth and sky and sea and everything that grows.
Not from anything we think and do ourselves, alone,
‘Cause Love’s the greatest Power we will ever know.
So
Refrain:

2. Love’s the greatest gift that we will ever give.
In every thought and feeling, it says we deserve to live.
Already at our service, Love awaits our joining in,
‘Cause Love’s the greatest gift that we will ever give.
So
Refrain:

3. May you know the Love the Spirit has for you,
In heart and soul and mind, no matter what you’re going through.
Not from any work, but in the Grace that makes you new.
O may you know the Love the Spirit has for you.
And
Refrain: (Twice)

Let Love fill your soul!

Refrain:
Let Love
Be the choice in your life.
Let Love
Be your strength in hard times.
Let Love
Be the hand that you hold.
Let Love fill your soul!
Let Love fill your soul!

Choice Is Voice

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Refrain:
How we spend our money,
Actions, words, and time,
There’s an awful lot of spending
That goes on in this life!
How we spend our energy,
Feelings, and thoughts,
The product ought to fit the price
Of what we spent in cost!

1. We don’t have to be broke
Or wonder which way’s up
Or try to drink from that half empty,
Cracked financial cup.
It’s gonna take some time,
But starting is a choice.
We know where our money goes,
And we still have a voice!
Refrain:

2. It becomes a habit,
What we say and do,
How we treat each other
And our fellow beings too.
It takes a conscious mind
To choose a better way.
Let’s speak for the Light in us
With every choice we make!
Refrain:

3. We criticize in judgment,
But so much is not true.
And we feel sad and tired
Like our energy is through.
But every day is new.
Remember why we’re here:
To live in Love and freedom
With the Spirit bright and clear!
Refrain:

We make the product fit the price
Of what we spent in cost!
