Music Makers (Bless You)



180126150222For you who walked this earth without fear,

For you who created a sacred space with tears,

For you who infused sound with purpose, who traced our beings with words,

For you who felt every emotion with color, woke in the sunrise with an open heart.

For you who moved forward without bounds.

For you who seen the faces of love in the beautiful and the solemn.

Every note you ever wrote… was a promise.

For you who never chose lies over honor.

For you who painted a melodic story, told the truth in the times of torment.

For you who shouted in the darkness, who seen the spark in us – knew it would make us hold on…

For you who held a guitar like a savior, whispered hymns to the strings like Angels,

We thank you.

We surrender to the voice of patience.

We need the music in our lives like nature.

When nothing else can reach us, when nothing seems to teach us,

When life has no other explanations…

Your melody is the motivation.

It moves our soul to make the changes.

This is for the hours of meaningful isolation… so the muse comes to surface when you can’t hear it.

Know we listen and appreciate it.

Please… never stop creating.






The Poetic Garden (For Monty Don)

Oct28th2014 020

Born a Child of Nature – the soil nurtured you.

Hands strong with love and intention – your fingers became the roots.

There was life and breath within the land – you felt it with your soul;

You planted seeds of trust and truth  – this made the poetry grow.

You knew how flora captured light – you painted a garden’s grace;

You heard the symphony of the flowers  – then you planted a melodic space.

In your heart is a story – you’ve written it  in the meadow;

In every seed and every stone – resonates your echo.

A lifetime of moments by an apple tree – a exuberant presence on the tip of a leaf.

The taste of sun in a strawberry, the scent of love in a swaying lily.

The texture of wood is possibility…

Creation sighs at the vibrant beauty.

This is the healing we learn from Monty.
