Masterworks Series: In the Park

Three Sisters

Three sisters guard my dreams:
Constance, Hope, and Grace.
For years their presence
Has been my peace and joy.

In waking or sleeping
At every crucial moment
They guide my heart
As I make my way forward.

Constance never forgets
The path that leads us home.
Like the morning star
Her beacon shines from within.

Hope looks forward.
Though she sees no ending,
She has given life to my steps
At every uncertain turn.

Grace inspires and moves with ease.
Like a soothing wind
She offers assurance
That all shall be well.

Three sisters guard my dreams:
Constance, Hope, and Grace.
Without their presence, 
How empty the world would be.

Monday Music: Orange Blossom Special (Shades Mountain Air)

It was a joy to hear Shades Mountain Air perform at Moonlight on the Mountain last Saturday night. They did a variety of music from Bach to Bluegrass with Gershwin, Gospel, and some original songs thrown in along the way. They closed the show with an "Orange Blossom Special" medley.  Here is a recording of that same number from the 2013 Alabama Bluegrass Music Association Showcase of Bands held at the Bessemer Civic Center on March 16, 2013.

Saturday Haiku: After the Blossoms

after the blossoms
there is no fading away
new life arises
