Soaring #Decima #Poem

A seagull soars above the beach
In search of fresh and fragrant fish
Or maybe crispy, crunchy chips!
You can’t avoid his dive and reach!

So, as your skin the sun does bleach,
Beware of seagulls flying high!
Their home is in expansive sky,
And yet they do approach the land,
Perhaps to steal what’s in our hands
To soar again in sheer delight!

Take note of sparkles
Wisps of beauty Nature sends
Hear the fairy song

“Fairy Song” is an expanded original piece that began as the “fairy flute” from
In the Fairy Meadow.

It now has a B section–additional melody. I play these 2 parts on Oriole (soprano) recorder, with harmony on alto recorder. Take note of the Harmony Ball pendant as well!

Enjoy!

O hear this peaceful lullaby
That carries you to wondrous dreams
On horses with their manes that stream!
You ride them safely now in flight!
You travel far in sweet delight
Upon your brown or on your bay,
On dappled mare or on the gray.
You dream as high as horses leap,
Your own adventure while you sleep
From moonlit night to sunlit day!

The background music is the American folk song, “The Little Horses,” which was part of my
Double Strung Experiment series.

This version is played on a true double strung harp, alto recorder, Egg of Creation shaker, maple rattle, and pear branch Little Spirit Shaker.

I hope you enjoy the music and poem!

Rocks and sand and soil
Northern element of Earth
Safe and sound in peace

Safe and sound in peace
Western Water’s changing tides
Cleansing, quenching thirst

Cleansing, quenching thirst
Burning flame of southern Fire
Shedding old for new

Shedding old for new
Eastern Air refreshes, cools
Lifting us in flight

Lifting us in flight
Spirit at our center speaks
Unforgotten Source
