Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Jamál (Beauty), 7 Rahmat (Mercy) 176 B.E. - Sunday, June 30, 2019
"The pipes, the pipes are playing..."
The music of my soul,
Chords that fall like raindrops
from mountain crest and castle wall,
Wild notes from highland battles
echoing both victory and defeat.
"The pipes, the pipes are calling..."
To my genetic roots;
Recalling ancestral memories
from glen and moor and bog,
Memories of Gaelic gods and goddesses
worshiped in Erin, in Scotland, in Man.
"The pipes, the pipes are marching..."
To a new song in this day,
To a song of unity, faith, and freedom,
A song that all humanity can sing.
