Words to a song by author/musician Laurie Conrad.



Song I.  Laughter

The earth
of the woods soft underfoot
laughter coming
through the trees
in the sunlight
here & there, in our eyes,
as we go towards the
tall cliffs

drawn by the music of
the cascading water,
its melodies half hidden
& mingled with the sweet
songs of the birds

the World's harmonies
hung on the falls
in the sun & mist
the water falling falling
so sweetly around us
calling to us,
calling our names.

Hello Richard! You wrote: "The Worlds harmonies hung on the falls" to me politicizes the personal (physical) vision, too much, with a contrived sense of being more than one really is, and embracing more than one is really capable of. Seeing, as opposed to perceiving, beyond the physical can, and does, present too many anomalies when one try's to blend together the ethereal experience, and the corporeal experience, in ways that were never intended." The line of this poem, " The World's harmonies hung on the falls " was an auditary reference - i.e. in the sound of the falls were collected all the world's natural (physical) harmonies ... Also I should probably add that I am clairvoyant and clairaudient as well as clairsentient ... All that being said, thank you so much for your well thought out and insightful, reflective review ... (I also apologize, you wrote this review years ago - but I just saw it ...)

Beautiful and symbolic prose. I can picture the serenity and hear the music. Can't wait to listen to this recording. Thanks for sharing. My best, Gloria

There is a mystical quality to this construct, as in all your work that I have sampled, almost like the wonderment of a child as she/he sees something for the first time.

"The Worlds harmonies hung on the falls" to me politicizes the personal (physical) vision, too much, with a contrived sense of being more than one really is, and embracing more than one is really capable of.

Seeing, as opposed to perceiving, beyond the physical can, and does, present too many anomalies when one try's to blend together the ethereal experience, and the corporeal experience, in ways that were never intended.
