Composed as cat-walk music for a Swervy Garland summer fashion show. Largely instrumental flute and guitar with bottle, bell, concrete floor and shisha pipe percussion.


Gentle and warm
I hear the birds in the trees

Purple and wild
Brighten the air with their blooms

Cool summer breeze
Pungent with salt
Fresh from the sea
Carries the cries of the gulls

Tranquil and calm
Grasses all sparkling with dew

Crowning the hills
Peaking out behind the clouds

Downy white clouds
Float through the blue
Overcast grey
Captures the warmth from the sea

warm ocean air
Heavily hanging around

Lured by the heat
Arrives with its full entourage

Lightning and rain
Descend on the earth
All things give way
When the summer sky speaks

The wind it picks up
The rain turns to hail
Leaves the air brisk
But the blue sky returns

Day for a hike
Or a quick dip in the pond

Fir trees
Teaming with life
Fill the warm air with their scent

Too hot in the sun
Too cold in the shade
Woods swarming with flies
Pollen's attacking my nose

Gentle and warm
I hear the birds in the trees
