Harp Song of the Wind

harp song of the wind
soul sings its melody of grace
chambers of heart resounding
felt is the pulse of divinity
change and timeless accord
change and timeless accord.

The song... the music... and poetic dialogue...

Performance of September 3, 2014
Union Arts Center
Sparkill, New York

Marc Farre... song and poetic dialogue

hear this sounding proclamation of BEING
here I AM
night prayers, the loss, the memories
the dream awake... accord, accord, accord
the search prevails
within the melody of heart
one of these days
again it be known
the dark night
the small town
ever lost, ever found
sounding echo
hand and heart in love's refrain
a greeting 
a farewell
all to entreat passions known
heart free, heart free, sweet George
accord, accord, accord.

Alula... the music... in poetic dialogue

hear I the flutter of wings soaring
heart strings sounding
fly free
the heartbeat of the brilliant sun
the flow flow of the river
towering trees that hold the light
orchestrated hues of the setting sun
sounding sounding be the splendor
the ALL of mind, as too, rain drops
drifting, drifting, drifting
time beckons, the moon is rising
we are, we are, the calling
voices of heart in gentle refrain
the light enfolds its own magic
dream, sweet light dream
on our way
on our way
sweet, sweet journey
sweet, sweet journey.

Saturday Hour in Tappan, New York

Darkened be the sky at this afternoon hour
Grass, bloom, branch and bough
Touched by the rain
'Tis libation's vow
Waters welcomed they be
Felt is the delight of field and tree
The sound of rain a melody sweet
The ALL of above with earth to greet
And when the sun to shine anew
Echoes of green graced on to you.

September 11, 2001

A decade plus three years have gone by
Since horror besieged that September 11th sky
A morning that yet echoes lament and loss real
Tears, heartache, shock, beyond all conceal
Time alone does not ease the grief and pain
For the inward scars of loss long long remain
Deep within, a loving wise, to hold, to embrace
Memory of our loved ones within heart we place
In dedication, in honor, and with everlasting love
Blessed BE the souls that dwell within heavens above.

The X Factor...

First Known Use of X FACTOR ~ 1930

Definition of X FACTOR: 

a circumstance, quality, or person
 that has a strong but unpredictable influence.

I have put forth the ABC's of PRAISE. Each letter offers an affirming word. The letter X bore no word. As I reflected on this omission I came to fully appreciate defining its meaning as the X factor...
the crossroad
the intersection
the interchange
the exchange
this the X factor

the target
the focus
the center
the claim
this the X factor

the vision
the risking
the quest
the discovery
this the X factor

the planning
the practice
the perfection
the performance
this the X factor

the outer possibility
the inner knowing
the doing and the having
this the X factor

the juncture
the interface
the confront
the resolve
this the X factor

you the transformation
you the soaring spirit
you the eternal being
you the SELF crowned to BE
the word, the light, the PRESENCE.
