I am but a part of this all I am is all I give everything that comes to me comes as sure as I will breathe Sure as tempest storms us in two pulls us planets oppose orbits sure as forces spin us cycles spiral changes joyous frightful surely my dear you’ve sung to the moon cross desert and sand cross time and plan cross hidden and bloom you’ve sung to the moon…

Baby this place is crazy we gotta hold on, we gotta stand up tall and when the fire it tries to change us we let it in Quicksand becoming fountain, becoming open, becoming joy and pain into the ocean, this holy moment you dive in But take a look at me now I am a shadow dancing with light I am a freedom falling like rain I am the love you gave I’m comin’ on down the bend, ain’t nothin gonna stop me now whenever I call your name you come in like a waterfall and I’m singin’ you through the night, on every breath you’ve given I’m ridin’ on waves of time, makin’ my way, makin’ my way… Error becoming pious, becoming righteous, becoming fallen grace into this garden we’re cast as children to begin Listen: the winds are changing, the water’s rising, the compass points us home and are we movin’, and are we choosin’ to stay awake But take a look at me now I am a wild wind in the night I am a letting go of the reigns I am the love you gave I’m comin’ on down the bend, ain’t nothin gonna stop me now whenever I call your name you come in like a waterfall and I’m singin’ you through the night, on every breath you’ve given I’m ridin’ on waves of time, makin’ my way, makin’ my way…

Blue smoke, flicker deep, turn my sight and take my sleep white light shadows face — are you friendly foe? are you runaway? ashes fallin sweet, you burned up every part of me bright night shadows grace , will I let you in, will you teach me patience slowly with the moon I wane away and become new leaving with the dawn, may fullness rise in the world beyond blue smoke, flicker deep, turn my sight and take my sleep white light shadows face, into every name will you come this way again Blue smoke, flicker deep, run me wild and set me free wide eyed sudden wake, spark to breath will become flame blow ye bellow sweet, give you all these lungs can breathe grow thee to your might, be the way of wonder sighing slowly with the moon wane away and become new leaving with the dawn, may fullness rise in the world beyond blue smoke, flicker deep, run me wild and set me free wide eyed sudden wake, into every name will you come this way again

Across valleys folding, across waters frozen across the time between my dawn and your setting sun these are stories blowin’, these words tender showin’ how can I touch the shape of wing-binding’s falling ‘way oh tongue, set you free, and oh mind let it be oh land, teach me how to lay in the storming wind across hearts aching, across skies a-breaking across the time between our suns I’m lost in your stars by the light of the dark moon just be as you are, just do as you do by grace and devotion by lettin go, lettin go overything by breath as it takes you by the light of the dark moon I’m lost in your stars Two-toned, moment wide, breathing, stay with it I aim for the place between all longing and letting be speaking honeywine, making wishes star-side these are the arrows in the battle of becoming make me a warrior hummingbird, disarming you be a compass to guide this flight take me surrendered, fill me to spilling over the roots of this endless sky I’m lost in your stars…

If I am a fountain, I am a spring you bathe in my rivers, I’m giving you everything I am a cup, you be the wine I’ll drink till I’m thirsty, drink till I’m blind by your brilliance every day, in every way, every day your shining is calling me out your shining is summoning light from my skin to be calling us out in all of our dawning If I am a mountain, you are a valley we’ll see in each other the balance of everything I am a feather in the wing of a swan the bond never broken, love in a life beyond time we’ll see it this way, staying awake, every day your shining is calling me out your shining is summoning light from my skin to be calling us out in all of our dawning

Oh come ye mother waters I am diving into thee float me on your rivers and sing me with your sea…

May my voice be strong and this step be light may our learning come on this wheel of time As a breath be took may the lessons glide swiftly as the wind gentle as a sigh and hear it callin’ me home hear it callin’ me listening hear it callin’ my soul come and be my guide walkin’ by my side as a breath be taken given taken given callin’ me home come and be my guide

There’s a demon inside the cage behind bars of memory snakes down deep like lava molten melting in each crevice creaking age of myself, I rise from leaden limbs envisioned as a heavy deadbolt, longing locking thoughts up remind: the key — all this is fleeting reweaving echoes singing singing, turning, over, over I miss you, I still miss you when you’re here in this same room with the lives that we spoke to let the name do what the feeling soothed I miss you, but no tale tells how I miss you sweet sailor, in this same room with the lives that we spoke to From the image of a trace of what’s cradled and let long ago, become the same as the one I knew so sweetly and i thank you day and deeply in each footprint we place in grace lands, superb silence, lush jungles of leaves it’s the only conversation worth listening to yet here, in this same room, back to where I’m used to speaking quickly something falls back on itself there’s a possibility in this silence….

Take it slow, and don’t get in your way keep it movin’ at the pace of every weather look within, and don’t forget you are surrounded by the wind as it rushes in your lungs oh Honey — you are born of the moon precious cave, don’t forget there is unknown inside you don’t turn away from yourself by bein’ like somebody else you are tide crashin’ over and call of the mountains and your darkest tunnels are where your light come from So take it slow, what you long for’s on its way don’t stop reachin’, taste the sound of every color deep within, let your wild be uncaged run with the wind and rush into its lungs oh Honey — you are born of the moon precious cave, don’t forget there is unknown inside you don’t turn away from yourself by bein’ like somebody else you are tide crashin’ over and call of the mountains and your darkest tunnels are where your light come from oh aim for the journey, and grow with the night be brave in your loving, keep steady your sight oh Honey — you are born of the moon precious cave, don’t forget there is unknown inside you don’t turn away from yourself by bein’ like somebody else don’t turn away…
