New Day Sun

I’ve been playing Cello for 1 1/2 weeks so far. I have my first lesson via Zoom on Monday, and my Niece is my teacher. Pardon the songs lately because I’m a rank beginner, but trying to write songs for Cello is a fabulous exercise. Even though I’m getting older, it’s like the new light of a new day – learning something new makes me feel much younger.

No matter how young or old
You can do whatever you want
If it comes from your soul

If it's from the heart
You will succeed
Jump right in and start

With a song on your lips
And a whistle in the wind
No one can sink your ship

Maybe There is a Heaven!

Just when you think
There's no beauty
Left in the world
Look up, you'll be reassured

It's easy to miss
The beauty all around
When our eyes are focused
On the flat earth ground

You'd be surprised
What you'll see
When you step away
From your virtual reality

It’s Never Too Late to Love

It's never too late
To extinguish hate
The fire that burns
Man never learns

But we must try
And never lose sight
Unchain our fears
Do what's right

Love conquers all
Or so they say
Let's give it a try
Start a new day

November Train


November
Blew in like a southwest train
Giving us hope and thanks
For much needed rain

Following October
With record rainfall
Maybe our drought
Won't be bad after all

Keep fingers crossed
This time of year
Our plants need the rain
Our water is dear

Holistic Yoga Flow

Left side
Right side
Both sides
Don't hide

Art and Science
Truth and Seance
Collective wisdom
Makes for great fun

An open mind
Creative thoughts
Yoga movements
Drop your pretence

Relax, untie
Your twisted knot
Let it flow
Then you'll grow
