Light Song

Thursday, October 31st, 2019

back cover

here there are no endings

only tides of change

here the path goes ever wending

through forests born of rain

 

there’s a shadow of a raven

gliding over fields of stone

life and light have found each other

we are none of us alone

 

come with me and join the dancing

add your voice to evening’s song

find a place to watch the turning

of the day to night and dawn

 

give yourself to silent wonder

shout your feelings to the sky

bless this chance to share the gift of life

never mind the reasons why

 

Sweet

albion road for Sweet

 

There’s a light on the hill at the end of the day,

That’s as sweet as the sweet yellow rose.

I would give you this flower if only it bloomed

Any time but the golden hour.

 

There’s a song in my heart every time you are near,

That’s as sweet as the breeze off the bay.

I would sing you this song if only I knew

What the sweet breeze was trying to say.

 

Come away with me now to the top of the hill,

We will dance for the golden hour

We’ll open our hearts to the breeze off the bay

And give voice to the sweetest flower

Election

election

The evidence against them was overwhelming.

We explained their crimes in simple terms.

Our facts were unassailable. We exposed

their villainy to the bright light of day

on hundreds of community radio stations

and dozens of progressive web sites.

We proposed innovative programs to

restore the environment, reverse global warming,

create millions and millions of new and meaningful jobs,

provide free education and healthcare for all,

and bring about a cultural renaissance.

 

They countered with a mesmerizing music video

featuring a catchy song about freedom and hope

and the dawning of a new tomorrow.

The song was performed by a gorgeous woman

wearing a diaphanous red, white, and blue gown

clinging to the curves of her exquisite body

as she and a rainbow coalition of beautiful young women

danced to the irresistible rhythm of the song,

their eyes sparkling with tears.

This music video was shown

to everyone everywhere

through every form of media

seventy-seven billion times.

 

The vote was not close.
