Consider the lilies
Ye sons of despair
Consider the lilies
Ye daughters of care
And from them instruction receive
Though fragile and feeble
Yet see how they grow
They toil not they spin not
Nor care do they know
But kept by their Maker
A solitary wanderer
Guided by the winds
Through lonely valleys
Sipping from streams
Sleeping under stars
Night’s canopy as tent
Rolling on soft grass
Lay supine, dreaming
Of the sparkling stars
Holding them in the eyes
Life sparkles with glee
Waylaid from the crowd
Greets the wanderer
Solitude is bliss
Wanderer finds meaning
Finding ones purpose
Turning away from the crowd
Back home after a great week in Germany & Holland. Thanks for all who organised the gigs
and all those who came.
Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.
Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist.
And however difficult life may seem,
there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don't just give up.
Each of you a bordered country,
Delicate and strangely made proud,
Yet thrusting perpetually under siege.
Your armed struggles for profit
Have left collars of waste upon
My shore, currents of debris upon my breast.
Yet, today I call you to my riverside,
If you will study war no more.
Come, clad in peace and I will sing the songs
The Creator gave to me when I
And the tree and stone were one.
She came this way, looking for fortune and fame.
Drawn like a moth to a flame.
To have everything she doesn't need
A poverty born out of greed
Where riches are never enough.
To pay for the longing for love

The Piano Blog
I'm trying to play the Piano for a while most days. Just improvising whatever comes into my head.
Just to capture a moment.
All these pieces are unedited, one take and so mistakes are included !
