The simple life.

lyrics

Out of Two Hands

Desert Sun, we have Summer knees.
Autumn’s fruit lies at our feet.
Changing leaves signal the coming snow.
Come December, we’ll rattle cold teeth.

For now, raise up the window blinds.
Take a walk, make something to eat.
Waste no time, mountains are calling us
to follow streams & carry our feet.

Before we let it go, chime bold & green.
The hours lift our limbs down uneven streets.
A heart’s an antedote for scars unseen.
My head & yours are one, one & the same.

Children learn hymns for light, for limbs.
We grind days, trade lives for hints.
Warm is the House, House of the Sun.
Let its rays rest on charmed lives of the young.

Slow is the pulse of Eden’s lush tongue.
It’s a noon kiss the plants have held forth & now sung.

What this world forgot now returns to greet us.
Veins in the rock carry history’s carcass.
Levers & their luck lift this human opus.
Eyelids on Earth, blink & gain focus.

Out on the wheel this life is spinning.
What has shook loose cuts worries noose & floats away.
An old potter stuck at the wheel
sits down to center.
Clay without words, grows out of two hands.
Out of two hands.
Out of two hands.

Warm is the House, House of the Sun.
Warm is the House, House of the Sun.
