GRACE LIKE GRAVITY

Night arrives

carried by the westward flow

ferried towards that eastern glow

Take some time

elements of earth and clay

weigh on you, come what may-

take some time, come what may…

Grace like gravity sinking you down, my friend

Breath like truth to fill you up

Day divides

burdened by the purse and seed

calculate to suit your needs

Strange ally

who’da thought to savor this

treasure trove of emptiness-

strange ally, emptiness…

Grace like gravity sinking you down, my friend

Breath like truth to fill you up

and when things fall apart and you’re left clinging to the memories

as if some uncertain sense of being nothing but the pain

and when things fall apart and you’re left counting stolen breaths

between the atmosphere and what you’ve got left

wed me to the stars at night to keep my mind from turning

make my feet dance ‘pon the earth and keep that firelight burning

 feather in your cap- you’re made for flying 

like, gravity’s your thing, man- there’s no denying 

and suddenly it comes to me

tethered to the ground’s not free…

Grace like gravity sinking you down

Breath like truth to fill you up

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Walden On Wheels: Five. Grace Like Gravity”

  1. Love it! You have such an amazing voice. So many interesting elements! The message in the lyrics (thanks for putting them up), the melody is so interesting, the bridge with the uneven meter (bars of 7 & 8), the cool clarinet solo and fills). Wonderful piece full of originality! Congratulations!!!
