There’s a mighty army of angels
Fighting for you
Putting everything back in place
Your heart will sing again my friend
Be still and listen
The victory song is already written
enchanted flower song
for my Sri Lankan friends: a Sinhala song I wrote while working on the book On Rose Petal Wings – with Music by Dad’s friend Anslem Fernando, sung by his lovely daughter Nishali

I just added Michael Gaither’s newest Album Hey Karma to my music library.
As you may have already guessed from my poetry, I have a Musical Heart and love to listen to songs that spark the imagination – especially lyrical creations that have strings (guitars, banjos, mandolins etc.) in the background. This mix of songs by our Northern California local Americana singer-songwriter is both melodic and entertaining (as usual). Take it along the road as a musical companion as you brave the Bay Area traffic. And if you work in the Silicon Valley or anywhere in Technology – check out the song “Best of Breed Romance”, I guarantee a smile and you wont be disappointed!
My personal favorite on this album is “Somewhere I Went Right”. Find yours here
and listen to the title track “Hey Karma” live on KPIG radio

A poem inspired by the Album BREATHLESS by Kenny G
A single reed
Is all I need
To take me home
To the way we were..
Two feathers in the wind
In a dance
With our dreams
Waiting for the dawn
Two parts in one song..
How the years have gone
How far we’ve flown
But the saxophone
Makes it all seem
A year ago..

A brilliant song can lift you above anything.. Certain magical musical experiences stick with you forever – like beautiful motifs, woven into the fabric of memory.
Inspired by “Good Souls” and other songs from Americana singer-songwriter Michael Gaither’s Starlite Drive-In Saturday Night
Down memory lane
The sound of strings
Calling my name
Before the intro ends
Time to remember
Some old friends
To drink once again
The rest of the song
It all makes sense
Another great song
With no pretense
Poem by Samanthi Fernando, Author of Musical Heart
