Please, Lord, don't let me become mean.

Maybe some help getting lean.

I can learn to bang a tambourine.

Spiritual awareness is becoming so keen.

Could this have been foreseen?

The most powerful things are unseen.

This is like an evil Halloween.

Oh, yes, more caffeine.

Can you hear the rhythm
The rhythm of a drum
It's easy to copy it
Tum Tum Tiddly, Tiddly Tum Tum

It is also easy
To imitate a bell
Tinkle Tinkle Tinkle
That goes very well

Also, you can Bang and Clang
Boom, Boom, Boom and Bong

Light will eventually find its way
through the dark. No one lives in it 
forever, so never give in to suicide
Just wait until the light comes out
It will find you in the dark

You are loved more than you'll ever know
And you...Read More

Daniel had an old guitar...
That he could never play 
It sat stood in it's stand... 
Until he took it out one day 
And Daniel never taught himself...
How to play that old guitar 
He never thought one day, that he would...Read More

Play me in the morning before I've time to dress.
Play me softly. I will be your lute.
Hold me to your lips. . . and lightly press.

Should you see me in the afternoon,
pick me up, and I will be your harp.

Come my love past the beauty of the hill
Ablaze with ginger sunset and fall fire
On a fast downhill wagon hayride thrill
In festive saffron and amber attire
Celebrating with tambourine and lyre
Autumn’s gift of new harvest abundance
With an improvised Abu Barn floor...Read More

Back to the city we go
We leave you winter ghosts
To sway away on your hanger hosts
Until next year or never more

It depends on my poor dad, if he can dress himself
Next spring.

I stand for a moment in his empty closet

Dancing in a flowing nightgown in only my bare feet.

The subtle crust slowly encases around my beating heart
Where the layers of scars have formed a dance line
Stepping in time to the angel of deaths tambourine
Beckoning and persuading me to surrender my last breath
But that crust is now my fortress

Saša Milivojev - A BIRD IN A CAGE

Here I fall again
A drop from a roof-gutter
A message dripping
Sadness springs from the heart
I hear the tambourine in my silence
When friends break your heart
No one around to help
Like a bird in a cage
Awaking...Read More

Premium Member Taking No Prisoners
Dancing through life
Shaking my shoulders
Loosening up my hips
A sassy gypsy queen am I

Taking no prisoners
Enjoying my freedom
Playing my tambourine
Delighting the faeries

Twirling skirts 
In a variety of colors
Matching no one
Surpassing myself.

Singing my truth
Competition on. 
Fire oozes from my soul
I am the...Read More

A banjo on her knee
A phrase that makes me smile
I have never seen this myself

But I have played a tambourine
Not in church like two of the regulars,
But in my house, and outside, in my forest.

It makes worship ever jazzier,

Blessed is thy hand 
Play the tambourine 
Master the harp and the strings
Golden is thy breath 
Play the trumpet 
Grand is thy voice 
Sing hymns 
With joy and presence

And give him thanks

Dreamy, dirge-like or dramatic,
Tender, torrid or traumatic,
Each film will have its music score
To enhance its story's core.

For comedies the mood is bright,
Perhaps piano, tinkling light,
Or maybe, for some funny scene,
An unskilled burst of tambourine.

When the film's about romance,
The music may...Read More

I went back to the farm seeking Maggie, only to find that she had gone.
Searching for shelter from the storm.
Another sad eyed lady, laid low, who foretold of forlorn love,
and removed my crown of thorns.

The violin caresses

we are in ensemble ...
