Bees #Nonet #Poem

A bee’s life is valid in itself.
We could learn so much, if we tried!
Living in community,
Taking just what they need,
Giving all they can!
We miss the mark
Looking out
For MY
Needs…

“All Things Bright and Beautiful” #Music

Download “All Things Bright and Beautiful” Mp3

Here are 2 musical settings for the hymn, “All Things Bright and Beautiful.” If you live in the United States, you’re probably most familiar with the first one, composed by William Monk. If you live in the United Kingdom, you probably know “Royal Oak,” the traditional melody for the second setting.

I hope you enjoy hearing these tunes on Oriole (soprano) and alto recorder (which plays the verses of “Royal Oak”), with ukulele accompaniment!

Beneath the Waves #Decima #Poem

Sometimes I’m trapped beneath the waves,
Drowned out by loud and senseless noise.
Where is my hope? Where are my joys?
Is there a heart, a hand to save?

The brightness breaks in palest shades;
I miss the subtle change it brings.
The waves roll on, but softly sing
That feelings and emotions flow,
None meant to last! I must let go
And ride each wave to set me free!

Revolving Spiral #Poem

One
Nature
Evolving
Invisible
Indivisible
Becoming visible
Showing more than we can see
Except through eyes open and free
Sum of parts that aren’t afraid to be
As One revolving Mind of clarity

Cause #Decima #Poem

Attend to Universal Laws
And better life with this one turn,
For at your core the Lifeforce burns!
With or without you, It evolves!

The Lifeforce is First Light and Cause,
Yet never does impose Its Will
And Purpose that we must fulfill.
We’re free to pick and free to choose
And take effect whiche’er we do,
Evolving Life—for Good or ill!
