Blue sea
Blue sky
Not me
Blue eye

Find range
Seek change
Or just be

Look up
Look out
Shake up
Now shout

Blue there
Sun through
Warm day

Blue joy
Blue sad
Old boy
Not bad

All there
Light shines
Just like

Don’t be
Blue now
Be free
Find how

Blue shows
Light grows



About Dawnings:
“Every morning at around 5am I get up and go down to my studio. After a short meditation I write down whatever is in my head, giving myself fifteen minutes to do so. Then moving over to the piano (or a more portable instrument like my Ukulele when I'm away), I improvise and record a piece of music inspired by whatever words I just wrote. It is a great way of keeping both my writing and my composing going and I call these small creations Dawnings. They are mostly unedited, like sketches, so that they keep that fresh feeling of an early morning discovery.”
