about

Remnants: I was sitting on a bleached out log by the beach doing some free writing. As the sun rose overhead I took another look at a huge tree stump, logs, and branches washed up on the shore. I recalled a moment I looked at all the felled trees while driving up MT Rainier. After my recent losses and recalling my shock at seeing what looked like a slaughter of trees on the hillside of a foothill, the song wrote itself.

lyrics

"REMNANTS"
(v1)
Trees lived free on Mt Rainier
Before loggers chopped and cleared
Their best parts sold for a price
Unused parts were sacrificed
(v2)
Remnants washed up on the shore
Majestic stumps, knarled limbs and more
Silent dignity was their strength
Age old wisdom one could not take
(Chorus)
Like remnants washed up on the shore
Stronger and wiser than before
See the treasures found inside
Inner beauty can no longer hide
(v3)
Under the sun and assure sky
Winds blew through to purify
I couldn't help but to stare
All these remnants now lay bare
(v4)
Like a remnant under radiant sun
Heal from a life now dead and gone
From your heart a song to sing
A light that shines your spirit will bring
(chorus)
(v3 reprise)
(chorus's/solos)
(v5)
Rest now under assure sky
Let winds blow through to purify
The best of you is yet to come
Your soul's journey will live on
