What's in a Name


Pic - Truedessa's Collection

















saying  names as the drum beats
enter the circle where you belong
here creator hears your song

whispering names, speak from your heart
stirring your  soul with deep emotion
here a cerulean sky, voice of devotion

from your tongue a host of places
rolling hills, lush green countryside
here in  paradise,  nature your guide

once  the rhythm is steady & strong
offer the names of those you love
here they will fly on wings of a dove

carrying  a message into the heavens
names of the ancestors dance in the sky
here in this world stand you and I

saying names as the drum beats
enter the circle where you belong
here creator hears your song
