Creation’s Daughter

Published October 1, 2017 by tindertender

Stoned on a stone on this Rocky River
So lost in thought of the things I remember
One of them is your pretty face
Another is the things it would say
Things like
All of these pivotal all these prophets
They are the change and the change in your pockets
Always pushing for the moment
That you lose control and you just flow with it
I have seen faces gathering in the desert
Not to find god or to find the answer
Just to be a part of the possibilities
Of thousands of bodies creating energy
Out here there is certainly alien activity
But where is here are we separate from reality
Maybe we’ve landed on the moon
Hope I don’t have to leave anytime soon
Follow the rooster to the mouth of the portal
I am an ox and I am tired of these mortals
Cleansing in the coastal waters
I fell in love with the daughter of creation
And how I lost is another story to tell
I worked those hills in the wild Wild West
And there I found gold and knowledge and respect
None of this will bring you back
It’s wonder I must expect that

O Sole Mio ~ What A Wonderful Thing

Neapolitan Italian Text
Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole,
n’aria serena doppo na tempesta!
Pe’ ll’aria fresca pare già na festa…
Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole.

Ma n’atu sole
cchiù bello, oje ne’.
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
O sole
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!

Quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne,
me vene quase ‘na malincunia;
sotto ‘a fenesta toia restarria
quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne.

Ma n’atu sole
cchiù bello, oje ne’.
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
O sole
O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!

English Translation
What a wonderful thing a sunny day
The serene air after a thunderstorm
The fresh air, and a party is already going on…
What a wonderful thing a sunny day.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

When night comes and the sun has gone down,
I start feeling blue;
I’d stay below your window
When night comes and the sun has gone down.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

 

Ancient Cry

Published September 15, 2017 by tindertender

“A world overcome by grief, anger and despair; Where hatred lies dormant to be ignited in an instant. The earth is weary and broken, blackened from years of war and pain. Those who remain pray for guidance and hope for a brighter tomorrow; and yet day never broke the endless night. A young girl stood atop a hill, her heart heavy with sorrow as she took in the ghastly vision before her. “This is what our kind has wrought upon the world…” Looking up at a dark sky, her tears fell into the soil. She felt a warmth within her begin to grow, filling every fiber of her being. Calm, yet faint voices began to speak to her. ”Child… Go now. Bring your light to the world in darkness. Hear our words and release them! Bring back the joy, the love. Banish the hate and the fear. Hear us, child. We are with you.” The girl clutched her heart as she was overcome with emotion, she raised her head to the sky and filled the air with her voice. Light began to emanate from her body as she let out her Ancient Cry; carrying the song of her people, long forgotten. The world around her began to change as she strode along, life growing with each of her footsteps. The girl walked to the end of her days, and now, the people continue to hear her Ancient Cry with each gale of wind, hear her passion in the trees, feel her love in the waters. The girl may be forgotten by some , but her song shall prevail throughout the ages to come, even in the darkest of times.”
Sebastian Michaelis
