about

A musical meditation where time steps along the stage. Dreams fold like memories and as the clock chimes, past, future and present dance together as one. Let Mr October be your guide. A trickster, a shape shifter of moods and colours, leading the way through a vast array of rooms where light and shade glide alongside each other.
A walk through the Gardens where Gypsy Caravans light fires of wild passions tempered by cool fountains that play, silver and bright. Shadows dance through the warmth of a rich velvet sky. A Laughing Moon, sings throughout the night.

Track Name: Soul Dance/Can Moon Touch Day
Mesmerised by the myriad of colours shining
On watery droplets that lie
Upon the lashes of his sleepy eye
Moon dreams
Soaring through striated skies
Basking in a bed of billowing clouds comforting and crystal clear
Track Name: Sunflower
Sunflower
Open your petals to the Moonlight
Sunflower
Open your petals to the Daylight
Track Name: Moonflower
Stillness awhile
She stands
A statue
A silhouette of Moonlight
Tempted by the music of the night
A trumpet calls her tune
Her petals unfurl
As she tiptoes through a silken web of lace
Dewdrops beneath her feet
Luminous

Her silent partner follows
A shadow who sleeps through daylight
Awakening the darkness of the night
He sings with a party of stars
As Moonflower dances
Track Name: An Accidental Dart
T'was yesterday
A fleeting dart
Pierced an ancient wound

Gently dripping tears
To
A pond
Of bubbling fury

Blown to sea
On the breath of song

The singer returns
Today is glorious sunshine
The music sings
Freedom
As the sad memory
Rolls away
On distant waves
Track Name: Laughing Moon
She looked to the Moon
He smiled
He winked
The joker he juggled
And the alphabet of stars, they danced
As elegant fireflies
They dusted the dark

Laughing Moon
He closed his sleepy eyes
And the day drew sunshine
Sonnets played joyful reflections
Those letters that shine through the glass
