81 Degrees (The Polar Bear Love Song) eue

with gratitude to Pearl, whom I met in Svalbard (28 June 2016)


Oceans eue
download or lyrics

in honour of all the beautiful creatures of the sea...and the sea Herself

Oceans of dreaming, gliding a while
Migrating freely, my heart wears a smile
Oceans of gratitude, oceans of peace
Surfacing, floating, then diving so deep

Radical trust: we're breathing together
The pod's connection through stormiest weather
Splashing and flipping, a tail or a fin
Oceans of riding waves, formation swim

Water holds me in her arms so tender
Water is the place that I call home
Water is my constant friend, water is my lover
Water is my teacher and I know

I'll never be alone

These oceans crystal clear, oceans of play
Sounding harmonics, I send ripples away
Oceans of singing, celebration
Spy hopping, drifting, liberation

Riding the currents, silver, jet black
In other dimensions, I flip on my back
Flowing and changing, oceans of healing
Jumping for joy, I surrender to this feeling


Stop This Train eue
download or lyrics

when the train of thought is runaway, you gotta get off!
