By June 03:54
By June June held out her hand to me, like a token offering As if to say there is hope yet, something you won’t regret Like a wish for rain, upon our hearts like windowpanes Come into our hidden halls, taste of old oblivion Sweet disintegration Of me and all that I believe June held out a ring to me to burn into my memory Words to give a rich man pause, words to give a poor man cause To hope beyond the dying fire - embers rise and then retire On the inside written words to last: “This too shall pass” Sweet disintegration Of me, and all that I believe Sweet disintegration Of June and me, and all that we believe Cause we rise – only for moment & We rise - often by the moment Every time you build a dream do you hear hammers readying? June may bring you to your knees but you’ll still like the scenery Cause beneath even the best of skies, ashen glows diminished pride It will yet glow again, when these clearing rains have left Sweet disintegration Of me, and all that I believe Sweet disintegration June and me and all that we believe By June … replenish me Bye June … un-damage me

Coming of Age On this part of the circle where we lay Each sparks, & gets carried away As if by plan, we cannot remain & hold tight for the coming of age As you feel right now, each one’s in its place And we’ll ride out from where we are today So let out, you feel it when you came Are you coming down, letting go, or coming of age? Learn each part, expanding your range & Though each heart has its better age There’s no line that we forgot to say & There’s nothing lost (at least in memory) As you feel right now, each one’s in its place And we’ll ride out from where we are today So let out, feel it when you came Are you coming down, letting go or coming of age? On and on and on and on As you feel right now, each one’s in its place & We’ll ride out, from where we are today Your soul’s let out, you felt it when you came Are you coming down, letting go or coming of age Coming of age…coming of age…coming of age

Seamless 03:41
Seamless And seamless we tear and reform And seamless we change scenes and forms I’m so tired of concealing the change I get tired of healing, feeling shame Until the letdown, until the letting go I won’t tire though I feel so And these are the reasons That I pull the seam Each shape is dismantled For perfect memory Until the letdown, until the letting go I won’t tire though I feel so Let down And seamless we tear and reform And seamless we change scenes and forms Until the stars’ fire empty and ashen glows Until the old eyes are yours and mine (you know) I’d never want more than this light to stand and see The world raking its coals and we see its embers gleam Let down

Sunlight Lies Sunlight lies Cold with me Somber eyes Stunning city Wanting spring and heat Sunlight lies cold with me Sunlight lies In our city The streets follow & Are not leading All the city scenes All the things I’ve seen Colder than I seem Sunlight lies well for me Sunlight lies Told to me Steal my gaze To see this city All the city scenes All the things I’ve seen Colder than I seem Sunlight lies well for me

Sedona 03:23
Sedona Mesa, red stone on high Paint a portrait of light Fragment of burnished sky And the sun All I’ve wanted seems to lead me here Echoes of a vanished year Desire changes color Under tears of sun Over the rain We are Over the rain We saw, midday sun in the sky Dust roads, no cars in sight Fragments of the sky And the sun Over the rain We are Over the rain & Down from darkness we climb Mesa, in the back of our mind Red hills over red sky And the sun Over the rain We are Over the rain

This May 03:19
This May (for Ava Simone) This May, Sun will rise for me And also for you my love This May, We will soon be three When you reveal your face Here we go Down one of many roads Become the only one This May This May – Since first is feeling Our minds are the same & Words follow like all your own days Here we go Down one of many roads Become the only one This May

La Belle Dame Sans Merci O, what can ail thee, knight-at-arms, Alone and palely loitering? The sedge is wither'd from the lake, And no birds sing. O, what can ail thee, knight-at-arms, So haggard and so woe-begone? The squirrel's granary is full, And the harvest's done. I see a lily on thy brow, With anguish moist and fever dew; And on thy cheek a fading rose Fast withereth too. I met a lady in the meads Full beautiful --- a faery's child; Her hair was long, her foot was light, And her eyes were wild. I made a garland for her head, And bracelets too, and fragrant zone; She look'd at me as she did love, And made sweet moan. She found me roots of relish sweet, And honey wild, and manna dew; And sure in language strange she said, 'I love thee true.' And there she lulled me asleep, And there I dream'd --- ah! woe betide! --- The latest dream I ever dreamt On the cold hill side. I saw pale kings, and princes too, Pale warriors, death-pale were they all; They cried --- 'La Belle Dame sans Merci Hath thee in thrall!' And this is why I sojourn here, Alone and palely loitering; Though the sedge is wither'd from the lake, And no birds sing. -- John Keats

Assume 03:52
Assume We arise in the morning of our mind Feeling sunlight as one We wake to find the morning of our pride So much work to be done I knew I Would find you But sometimes we resolve but wait to follow through now Assume I’m yours Soon summer doors will be open – We’ll drive the winding road to the lake Discord loses its hold on the music Your eyes hold the road, but often light on me I meant to Always find you This time I resolve and I’ll follow through Cause when I hear you right, catch the aspect of your eye

Sway 02:54
Sway Lightning outside today Stay inside, smell the rain Listening to Marvin Gaye Fill the room, Change my mood & sway Let this rain turn to snow Heat my tea on the stove Fingers warm when they clasp On the strength of what I’ve learned From the past I want to sway through these days with you Wait a moment; go nowhere Rest a moment in your the stare So many lost Their way Through the maze & I want to sway Through these days

Wave 03:19
Wave Lifting my eyes - Break a delicate smile On the waves Lifting my mind From the motion and rest Of the waves I’d like to be more of the wave Than the undertow So I can break on the shore And then return once more To the sea But I’ll be taking this light This hour And going…. I’ll be singing your praise When I am reclaimed Lifting my sight From the movement That will not cease From the crest to the fall, We rise and then we recede Still I’d like to be more of the wave Than the undertow But I can’t break on the shore Without returning once more To the sea
