The River Runs

I have used these photographs before but this time they to illustrate a song I have only just finished.

The words are slower than the picture to find.

'RIVERDANCE' From Words from Thought

Dip your hand in the water that flows,
Touch the moment that every instant holds,
The river of life rings the tree that grows,
Under a light that the future moulds,
Listen to the silence that music contains,
And within the darkness light unfolds,
To record a time that sound regains,
Every dream played by the falling rains.

'SCOTTISH FANTASY' From Let the end try the man

Watch as the water flows to the sea,
Listen to the thunder of the waterfall,
Ringing around the evergreen tree,
As it grows in answer to an ancient call-
Tall and straight toward the sky,
Disregarding danger of a fall,
To reach the place the unknown must lie,
And all find when they finally die.

'THE SANDS OF TIME RUN TO THE SEA' From Pictures within pictures

Live the moment that time gives to you,
Touch the world with every sense you own,
Hold the memories that make dreams come true,
With the love you have been given and shown,
The music plays from the mountain high,
That from only the earth has grown,
The rhythm of life within tree rings lie,
As the river runs back to the sea to die.

Training the Mind to Accept Everything


Carly has asked us to photograph a train.
Follow the link to join in and see other entries.

I take this request outside of the!

And give you my train...

'RIBBON OF LIGHT' From Words from Thought

A train of thought carries me beyond the horizon,
To the pot of gold that the rainbow holds,
Not having any earthly worth,
It lies to be discovered by those that rise,
Above and beyond,
Throughout all time and space,
And then win the first prize for the race.

I do not attempt to gain extra credit, as no conductor could be photographed during this performance!

Leader of the Pack

'STRENGTH IN NUMBERS' From Words from Thought

The Joker in the pack is always wild,
Laughter holds the key to freedom,
Smile and you are halfway there,
Take time and you will learn to dare,
To vocalise your thoughts,
Then stand-alone within the pack,
Create a moment past today,
Despite anything you could ever try to say,
For the joke must lie with the wildest card,
And the laughter lives with the Joker.

Move, stand and hold

'The Fall ' From Colour Contrast Continuity

Move it!
The invisible barrier that holds you back
Move it!
The lies and prejudice that fight the truth,
Move it!
The corruption that all compassion must lack,

And stand!
Where no horizon has ever been drawn,
And stand!
Where knowledge lies and ignorance falls,
And stand!
Where wisdom waits to rise at dawn,

Hold fast!
To the only way out of the night,
Hold fast!
To the strength freely given to all,
Hold fast!
To belief that will carry the light,

Move, then stand and hold
The light that dawn gives to the horizon,
So it might lead you beyond...

'SHEER FANTASY' From Colour Contrast Continuity
