The Dealt Cards...

The Dealt Cards...

Each day a new game
Never really the same
Time and chance play a hand
'Tis faith that calls command
A vision, a winner, a goal to set the stage
A lucky card to draw players of any age
Money made, money lost, and on goes the bet
Play it hard, the game is not over, not over yet.

You are the Eternal Universe - Alan Watts

Proclaim along with me ...

I AM the rising and setting sun
I AM the waxing and waning moon
I AM the ebb and flow of the tides
I AM the inhalation and the exhalation
I AM the giving and the receiving
I AM the challenge and the quest
I AM the light and the shadow
I AM the past and the NOW
I AM I, the Ascension Manifest
I AM blessed BE,  Birth Eternal.

In Creation's Grace,

Day Beckons ~ Autumn Light

day beckons to the night
and dons the sky in strokes of light
the setting sun in majestic array
the breath of beauty at close of day.

Autumn Light

Autumn Light 

majestic be this alchemy of light
golden hues of the calling night
nature's palette in expression divine
the grace of change and passing time
be I this moment in heart's embrace
the splendor of ALL within to place.

September Sun ... This Early Fall Day...

The warmth of the September sun I do feel
Whispers of the changing season this day to reveal
Vibrant strokes of crimson upon dogwood tree leaves
Taken alight by this day's gentle caressing breeze
A calm resolve, Summer's bloom hushed in fulfillment array
Trees, brush, fields of green, readied for the Fall parlay.

LIVE the moment, heed Spirit's call
Within each breath, the giving, the receiving, the ALL
Change be it known, the drama, the resolve, the grace
Truth within our hearts to place
Shadows to reveal
The light of self BEYOND conceal.

Harp Song of the Wind

harp song of the wind
soul sings its melody of grace
chambers of heart resounding
felt is the pulse of divinity
change and timeless accord
change and timeless accord.

The song... the music... and poetic dialogue...

Performance of September 3, 2014
Union Arts Center
Sparkill, New York

Marc Farre... song and poetic dialogue

hear this sounding proclamation of BEING
here I AM
night prayers, the loss, the memories
the dream awake... accord, accord, accord
the search prevails
within the melody of heart
one of these days
again it be known
the dark night
the small town
ever lost, ever found
sounding echo
hand and heart in love's refrain
a greeting 
a farewell
all to entreat passions known
heart free, heart free, sweet George
accord, accord, accord.

Alula... the music... in poetic dialogue

hear I the flutter of wings soaring
heart strings sounding
fly free
the heartbeat of the brilliant sun
the flow flow of the river
towering trees that hold the light
orchestrated hues of the setting sun
sounding sounding be the splendor
the ALL of mind, as too, rain drops
drifting, drifting, drifting
time beckons, the moon is rising
we are, we are, the calling
voices of heart in gentle refrain
the light enfolds its own magic
dream, sweet light dream
on our way
on our way
sweet, sweet journey
sweet, sweet journey.

Saturday Hour in Tappan, New York

Darkened be the sky at this afternoon hour
Grass, bloom, branch and bough
Touched by the rain
'Tis libation's vow
Waters welcomed they be
Felt is the delight of field and tree
The sound of rain a melody sweet
The ALL of above with earth to greet
And when the sun to shine anew
Echoes of green graced on to you.

September 11, 2001

A decade plus three years have gone by
Since horror besieged that September 11th sky
A morning that yet echoes lament and loss real
Tears, heartache, shock, beyond all conceal
Time alone does not ease the grief and pain
For the inward scars of loss long long remain
Deep within, a loving wise, to hold, to embrace
Memory of our loved ones within heart we place
In dedication, in honor, and with everlasting love
Blessed BE the souls that dwell within heavens above.
