Hello everyone and thank you for coming to read this blog. I truly appreciate it.
This song was simply inspired by the breathtaking images I have seen of the southwestern U.S.A. The rusty red rocky landscape of the Grand Canyon, the ancient Joshua trees, and the “milky turquoise” of the Colorado River…these made me think of the themes of beauty in rough terrains, how to find love for yourself and others during the rugged parts of your life. The Colorado River seems like such a salve flowing through that dry part of the planet, and the color of its water heals. I hope to go there one day! Have you? What experiences can you share, about this area or any place, that offered a feeling of peace and wellness for you and your spirit, when you felt like you were inside a dark cave in your mind and life?
Thank you for your input – here are the lyrics for “Turquoise.” Enjoy!
Flailing around, stubbing toes
In crazy town, blue-black crows
Crusty view, no one knows
You hold my hand, in that cave we go
Your river cuts through, making waves
My curves are soothed, echoes in my cave
Milky turquoise caresses me
Diamonds in the dark, Joshua trees
Stay close to me…my thorns can creep
Your voice dives deep…strong hands can bleed
Climbing slow up the crags of my
Jagged soul, scratched up thighs
Cool aloe, you apply
No more burns in green skies
Breathe lungs, aware…send my own flare
Blood-knuckles up that rock-face…I remember the way!
The way! The way! The way! The way! (2x)
The End, thank you!
