1. Ripen Me

From the recording Water in My Hand


Blossom my branches, for all to see
Cherry my hair and set me free
Sun me over, breeze through my leaves
Juice my fruit, bite into me

Snake song singing, slither my limbs
Send my soul winging, send me to him
Start me over, breathe into me
Fill my cup, drink from me

Patience I’m not, what purpose is this
Ripen me world, ripen me

Unfold my tale, make mermaid of me
Fill my nets, sail my seas
Start me over, breath into me
Soar to my depths & set me free

Start me over, breathe into me
Juice me fruit, bite into me

Ripen me world…
Come on down and baby get with me
Come on over and set me free
I’m ready!
