Music – Low Key


There are times in your life that don’t make sense,
When your brain is trying to manipulate the contents…
…. And struggling to comprehend,
What you’re thinking of and whence,
These crazy nonsensical thoughts began, and more importantly,

It’s the ever-present ageing syndrome,
… the one that can make others think,
The lights are on, but no one’s home,
Or maybe, and perhaps your chain’s missing a link!

But it’s not that. It’s more in line,
…. When you dedicate some valuable time,
To look at where you have come from,
As well as where you have been and what you’ve become.
And if you are happy with that, that person?
Could you have done more with who you are?
Can you still do more and become an improved version?
Or is and are those times gone and are now afar?
You ask yourself, what have l done that has stood out?

Is it too late to stand on rooftops and shout,
There’s more to me, much, much more than you can see!
But l haven’t shown you the true me…

      1. “Who Was Kokopelli?
        Known as a fertility god, prankster, healer and story teller, Kokopelli has been a source of wonder throughout the country for centuries. Kokopelli embodies the true American Southwest, and dates back over 3,000 years ago, when the first petroglyphs were carved. Although his true origins are unknown, this traveling, flute-playing Casanova is a sacred figure to many Southwestern Native Americans. Carvings of this hunch-backed flute-playing figure have been found painted and carved into rock walls and boulders throughout the Southwest.” (,Priest%20with%20actual%20healing%20powers.)

      2. Oh right, so connected to fertility and god like behaviours, l will have a read of that later tonight – have had a partial day of flustering hell and confusions and frustrations so am terribly behind with everything. 🙂
