Grateful Dead Ripple

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

Its a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
Perhaps they’re better left unsung.
I don’t know, don’t really care
Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
If your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain,
That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then whos to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.

The spirit in me welcomes the spirit in you, and I thank you for viewing my art. I have been blessed with a disease that has allowed me to learn, to grow, and to return to my passion of photography and digital art. Being permanently disabled with MSA at the age of 50 was a gift in disguise, because through the pain, my senses have all been heightened. The world through my eyes is what I hope to share with you, along with my deep love, faith, and hope through my art. Thank you from my heart.
