Fire on the Mountain ~ Mickey Hart Planet Drum

fire on the mountain
flame in the soul
life in full expression
this a plea, a questing goal
feel the pulsing breath and heart
from which life's knowing shall not depart
this ever present flaming light and fire
breath, passion, rapture's desire.

  1. Ah, YES,YES, " Life is GOOD ~ The Rhythm is Right." Just know it!!

  2. Thank you Rose Marie for reawakening me to Mickey Hart...I absolutely need more of his music! Your poem interprets the depths of this rhythmic work!

  3. yes- life is beautiful - may we all say joyfully "yes" to the beat of the Universe - to the flow of life - thank you for sharing the rhythm - the music!

  4. Theanne, There are a number of musical works, both classical and popular, that fully engage an upward thrust of energy. Among those favored are two, with my 'top billing,' the theme from "Rocky" "Gonna Fly Now" and Mickey Hart's Planet Drum. Each fully embracing all possibilities of soaring potential. So my friend ENJOY!!

  5. Ingrid, Music is the message - ever seeking meaning and harmony - and so too, the quest of all artful works. So pleased to see you here. Thank you for your visit.

  6. The theme from Rocky is a good one. I checked out Planet Drum at will get both...I need some "upward thrust of energy", music where I can feel the rhythm and dance!
