Crokinole 04:29
Drawn to the centre Pulled to the middle Down in the navel Deep in the marrow At the centre of all things Is a hole And at the bottom of the hole Heaven knows... Caught in the vortex Torn in the focus Twenty points at the nexus Cynosure omphalos Over the horizon Is a hole And at the bottom of the hole Crokinole
Starlings 02:10
All curled up Coiled in a shell Sinking down in spiral night time All spun 'round And wound up tight Nestled in the darkness of primal depths All entangled Twisted and entwined These ancient sylvan cryptic roots All is moisture Shadow and earth The dream - a cistern; the swirling fount
The Bowl 02:29
The bowl was not blue, I believe it was white But the bowl appeared blue in the absence of light And if there's difference between belief and sight It makes no difference to me
E.O.A. 07:21
Two falcons And a panther E.O.A. educated
Huron Carol 06:30
'Twas in the moon of wintertime When all the birds had fled That mighty Gitchi Manitou Sent angel choirs instead Before their light the stars grew dim And wandering hunters heard the hymn Christ your king is born Jesus is born In excelsis gloria
Weather 04:44
Far away But always just as near All around Everywhere and here Wind and rain Wind and rain and trees Trees in rain Rain like falling leaves And if you're going I'll be followin' And if you're coming I know where you've been Wind and rain Wind and rain and trees Trees and rain Rain and wind and me


"Fools, you go about and see the kingdoms of the earth, and are liberal and wise and cosmopolitan, which is all that the devil can give you — all that he could offer to Christ, only to be spurned away. I am doing what the truly wise do. When a child goes out into the garden and takes hold of a tree, saying, ‘Let this tree be all I have,’ that moment its roots take hold on hell and its branches on the stars. The joy I have is what the lover knows when a woman is everything. It is what a savage knows when his idol is everything ... I have a city (and bad music)."
