Lyrics by Richard Schletty

I am living in my body for this brief period of time.
Each day, with varying intensity, I ask myself, "What should I do?"

A feather falls silently on the stone walkway.
A bird chirps, delivering an unintelligible but beautiful lyric.
I stand apart from a kingdom I can not yet know.

While there is steadiness and strength in these hands,
While there is vision and resolve in the chemistry of my brain,
I should paint a picture of Spirit.

I will try to see with my third eye.

What an honor to have my poetry sung by a woman in Washington State with a chamber orchestra! I can hardly believe it. Thanks, Andre, for creating a beautiful orchestral setting of my poem. Let's get all 7 poem-songs perfromed. Two down, 5 to go. www.indwellings.com
