1.
The Norm 01:36
Whether the weather is Wet or regrettably Dry as the eye of a storm Never endeavor To batten down hatches In that which is natural in form Whatever matter of fact: Madefaction or desert-like desiccation Informs the norm
2.
Otherwise 05:08
Do I matter enough to stay? Long the journey from night to day Do I bother to learn the ropes? Vast the distance my heart still hopes Do I summon my soul to sing? Deep the silence of everything Living is like nothing Ever done or spoken Wise others do and say it otherwise
3.
Is the history of the heart Only blood upon the page? Is it any different Than it was in any age? Every battle bloodier When a bird is rattling its cage No greater feeling in the world Than the emptiness of freedom in hand Is the future of the heart Repetition of the past? Was it ever better, best? Are we never made to last? Everyone is happier When the wings are flapping high and fast No greater feeling ever known Than the emptiness of freedom in your hands
4.
Home 04:10
Home is where the heart is longing Not a time or place of belonging Home is all the unfilled spaces All the doors and windows opening To the unknown To a road possible To an unspun world beginning home נמצא היכן שהלב כמהה לא בזמן מוגדר או במקום של השתייכות המרחבים שלא מולאו כל הדלתות והחלונות נפתחים לרווחה אל הלא ידוע אל דרך מתאפשרת אל עולם לא פגוע בדרך הבייתה
5.
When all else fails, the birds will sing When all else fails, the day will break When all else fails, the wind will blow When all else fails, the end will come When all’s quiet, you hear it well When all’s lost, you can find it there When all’s broken, go fix your eyes On all else that fails to find The this and that The those and these The hers and his The yours and mine The where and when The why and how Of all that's true When all else fails, the birds will sing When all else fails, the day will break When all else fails, the wind will blow When all else fails, the end will come Of this and that Of those and these Of hers and his Of yours and mine Of where and when Of why and how Of all that we once thought we were
6.
Dancing in the rain, darkness and I Dancing in the snow, darkness and I Dancing a refrain, darkness and my soul Dancing on a limb, darkness and I Dancing in a hole, darkness and I Dancing to the brim, darkness and my soul It’s hard to stop dancing When the song’s over What could fill the silence? The dance is long coming Not so soon going Who would sit out darkness? Dancing in the fire, darkness and I Dancing in the coals, darkness and I Dancing to the wire, darkness and my soul It’s hard to stop dancing When the song’s over What could fill the silence? The dance is long coming Not so soon going Who would sit out darkness?
7.
Someday 03:24
Someday Will never come Sooner Or later than you thought or wanted Someday Is something else – Someone you hope to be Come down From cloud and star Comet Or distant planet you inhabit Someday Already came To the earth when you were born Why believe all that you have heard about it? All the lies that this is just the way the world is? Someday comes morning after morning, stranger at the door Will you answer you?
8.
Kiss the Day 04:00
All my mornings wake Before this break of day And all my afternoons Await the midday sun To make of much the most A day can hold Within its glowing hands Upon its endless back Between the blinking of its eyes I was made of day And night, of dusk and dawn As if asked by the sky To mind the sun and moon To make of much the most A life can hold Inside its every breath Behind its open eyes Before the waving of its hand Have we come too far to fall To our knees and kiss its feet? Kiss the rusted, dusty, muddy day?
9.
All is one heavenly body Only space can come between us Build it invisible bridges – Sizable signs of the soul All is two sides of a story What we dream – what we remember Life is forgettable if it’s Written when we are awake Dream dreams of flying Dream dreams of landing On new ground Dream dreams of flying Dream dreams of finding New dream land All is three: noon, night, and morning Only light can separate us Who would dare differentiate the Light from the light from the light?
10.
If To Gamble 03:14
A sidelong, backward glance A headlong, downward dive And I am still alive, still going on With deepest dark descent Despite the midday sun In spite of all, I heed the beck and call My stubborn soul and shoes As ponderous as stone And I am here alone, still going on Without an end in sight And night within, beyond The light of whose shone stars I stand to lose If to gamble, then to play If to stumble, then to fall If to stand at the bottom, then to fly
11.
For Singing 03:56
Sing no matter how Heart-heavy the day Only singing makes its Home inside of all emotion Sing no matter what Williwaw will come To your door and knock you Rock you, block you, or unlock you Sing no matter when: Shower, snow, or shine Morning, midday, midnight No time’s right or wrong for singing
