The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

Then I Saw the Light (a short song for Memorial Day weekend)

At peace with the Shinnecock
I cast myself adrift 
Between the banks
Of Weesuck Creek
Let the sun take care
Of all the rest
Then I saw the light
Dappling the waters
Almost pixilated
And I felt the coming glory
Of a summer that's eternal 
Yet all too brief

On Memorial Day
I emptied the compost drum
Mixing it together with manure
And topsoil to make my humus
It being a day for enrichment
And renewal now that 
The season has begun
