new song byte posted

I’ve just posted a new song, up at Heart of Life Music.

It’s called “Big Wide Grief” and its sung to the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb.”
You can listen to it here:

The lyrics unfold as follows:

Big Wide Grief

I think I have a little grief, little grief, little grief
I think I have a little grief, turns my hair as white as snow

I know I have a big wide grief, big wide grief, big wide grief
I know I have a big wide grief, makes me tear at my hair

I’ll take me to the hair salon, hair salon, hair salon
I’ll take me to the hair salon, where they can wash my hair

I’ll take me to the salty waves, salty waves, salty waves
I’ll take me to the salty waves, where they can wash my heart

I know I have a big wide grief, big wide grief, big wide grief
I know I have a big wide grief, makes me tear at my hair

I know I need to get a grip, get a grip, get a grip
I know I need to get a grip, and go into this world once more…

arroyos

earth’s branching veins
empty
I can walk right through
not even crumbly
mud

*******************

In New Mexico, a stream bed is called by its Spanish name, arroyo. Back before the drought of the last decade began, the arroyos running through the landscape here commonly had three or four inches of water flowing through them much of the year. Now they are more like tiny ravines, ever dry.

As for the drought, there is plenty of evidence that it’s not due to a caprice of nature. See www.geoengineeringwatch.org for evidence that the excessively dry conditions experienced in the western United States for the last seven to eight years have been artificially created.
