DRAGONFLY

I step outside toward the sun
Blue flame buzzes in my face
Then Darts away Along sun’s light ray

Dragonfly

Dragonfly came
Greeting me Teasing me
Showing me The way

Later as I sit outside
In patio shade shadowed light
The blue dragonfly again darts by
Under the portico then near my face
Then Out toward the trees
As if to say
Follow me
I’ll show you the way

What do I see? What do I see?
This is real Seems like a dream
What does it mean?Everything is more than it seems

Dragonfly

creature of light Lover of water
Color that flies sunbeam’s daughter
Taking time to realize what you offer


What do I see? What do I see?
This is real Seems like a dream
What does it mean? What does it mean?
Everything is more than it seems
Everything is more than it seems

creature of light Lover of water
Color that flies sunbeam’s daughter
Taking space to realize what you offer
Shimmer glimmer life in light
Breathe to concentrate the mind
Transformations in due time
Delight ever so sublime

This song is based on a true story — a real life waking dream encounter with a blue dragonfly. We typically don’t get blue dragonflies where I live. When we do get them, we get the big red ones with unmistakable faces who hang out by the fish pond over the summer. This year however, the drought really seems to have an impact on the dragonflies. I have seen only one red dragonfly in the garden the entire summer.

This is a headphone mix because I live with Haskel and I didn’t want him to hear what I did with his Shimmer guitars which include chopping them up, reversing things here an there, and moving things around a bit. (Not surprisingly, he was assigned me last secret mixter. You can’t make these things up.)

I added drum loops, singing bowls, bass and vocals. Instruments are tuned to A=432hz to match the singing bowls.

updated file adjusts overall balance.
