Who We Are (Supposed to Be)

"Who are we... I don't knoooooooooooooooooooow!" (sing along!)
by Truedessa and Blue
Blue and Truedessa  who are we in this earthly show?
Do you wonder what is out there beyond passing clouds?
Is there an oasis with blue skies, a place for dreamers to go,
A refuge for wandering souls to stay as long as time allows?

Ah time's a crooked thing, Miss Blue — don't trust it for a second.
As days rush byyou think they're minutes ever since life first beckoned.
And what a life it is, this earthly show, filled with stars, and us,
Hired by the day to play some part, wondering what it is we do
Or who we are supposed to be.
We dream, we discuss, we count the clouds until the count is lost,
We feel small and yet so big; our voice is clear, our eyes don't lie,
And still we sense we do not see, and at what cost?
A refuge would be quite the treat.
If souls exist, I'm sure you'll find your seat.

Do you believe beyond the sky river awaits a golden castle,
Where knights and their ladies dance to a minstrel's song
Waltzing in blades of grass, no longer fighting earthly battles?
Would we behold a place of true heart, a place for us to belong?

Believe I don't. My show is here, and it's enough.
No sequels for this movie buff,
This actor, this dreamer of dreams and more,
This earthly knight when eyes are shut,
This dancer among dancers galore,
This believer in the here and now,
This earthly show, this time to bow
and take it all in: a dream that might come true.
Who are we?
Who are we supposed to be?
Don't say our show was called The Unremarkable Two.

"Who are we... I don't knoooooooooooooooooooow!" (sing along!) 
"Who are we... enjoying life's shooooooooooooow!"(sing along!)
"Who are we...we're distant stars all aglooooooooooow!"

Lights Flicker

Photo source unknown

lights slowly flicker
fast approaching storm
lightning flashes in an ominous sky
trembling trees, dark clouds form
seeking refuge, birds quickly fly
thunderous roar, heaven rumbles
summer rain begins to tumble
cooling hot streets giant puddles
red robins safely huddle
watching night lights flicker

There's a place where the river flows
hawks perched watch those below
travelers dip their wooden paddles
mystical songs, turtle rattles

Eagle spirit soars above

drifting around the river bend
dreaming of messages to send
guarding waters, the river-keeper
spiritual quests must run deeper

Tree spirits line the shore

apparitions move soundlessly
blessing waters to run endlessly
ride the current, follow the signs
beyond grey skies, harmony aligns

Reflections - water is life

Moving Stars from Afar

photo - pinterest

There is movement beyond the stars
innermost dreams a dragon guards
stirring true hearts in a cloud-sea
love grows beneath a cosmic tree

weaving through celestial worlds
destiny waiting on wings unfurled
sending signals throughout the night
traveling towards the morning light

softly a whisper, are you awake
visions flicker before dawns break
believing dreams are the gateway
breathing in the magic of a new day

there is movement beyond the stars
love grows beneath a cosmic tree
