At My Window 05:27
illumined and blind I dream untroubled watching my mind a stream of bubbles endlessly rise forming, breaking ascending the skies as I awaken at my window, in my chair to watch the clouds go by to sit and ponder a mind that wonders why it wonders why at my window, anywhere in the world I go I'm in the best seat no view is complete but it's the only view I know I focus my eyes where the mirror of sea and the prism of sky draw a thin blue line across the horizon to vanish in me at my window on the grand design what gives me sight? and who is seeing the radiant delight that thrills my being? at my window, I stare but do I really see? the filtered lenses of all my senses distort reality at my window, I'm aware but never really know from pained projection to vain reflection, I'm just a picture show connecting the dots that appear on the screen exposing the plot in the evidence selecting the shots and composing a scene at my window of experience replay, eyes closed watching myself again the only thing I know is I am and all that I see all I feel, all I think resolve to a glimmer of dark and light the flash of my life gone in a blink at my window on the infinite © dave stringer

River 04:31
river, where will I be when the ashes have scattered and gone? forever the music and the mystery that splashes in water moves on river, in thy melody a voice is laughing and crying for all I have been and all I will be in the course of living and dying in this moment the current is flowing fast but it holds on to nothing as it's going past when I reach my limit with travels infinite the empty places to fill I slow down a minute and look at what's in it 'til everything seems to stand still river, in my memory I drift in the shimmering sun deliver me please from my miseries when all of my dreaming is done river, is it my destiny to journey back where I've begun through the geography of my heart to the sea where everything flows into one in this moment the future hurtles toward the past to vanish and return going nowhere fast when I reach my limit with travels infinite the empty places to fill I slow down a minute and look at what's in it 'til everything seems to stand still © dave stringer

Gunghata 07:45
Gunghata ka pata khola re! to he piya milenge. Lift up your veil and meet your beloved! Ghata ghata me vaha sai ramata, katuka vachana mata bola re. When it’s the Lord who dwells in every heart, Why do you say such bitter things? Speak sweetly, And you will meet your beloved! Dhana jobana ko garab na kijai, jhutha pacharanga chola re. Your money and your good looks make you proud! But when the masquerade is over, This costume you call your body Will unravel into the elements again. Sunna mahala me diyana barile, asana se mata dola re. A lamp is shining in the heart’s palace, and in its light the world becomes divine Once you’ve found that lamp, Don’t ever lose it! Jaga jugatase ranga-mahal me piya payo anamola re. Wake up! Wake up! Explore the palace there within you! Go and meet your beloved! His love is the love no one sells or buys.
