It’s Sunday coming down again for me right now with curtains of darkness falling around me rapidly. When it comes around to you, I hope you’ll relax to this last season of Sunday coming down in terms of my selection criteria. I’ve now come to the end of the alphabet, combining the letters, X, Y and Z. There wasn’t too much to choose from but the good thing is that I found music I don’t normally listen to. I hope for example, that you’ll enjoy the stunning performances of Yanni and his band of musicians with its feast of instruments and high energy. Next week, Sunday coming down will begin a feature on individual artists including duets or collaborations that they have done as sought after musicians. Once again my primary focus will be R&B and smooth jazz. To all the Dads in the house, enjoy the rest of Father’s day and to all of you – have a great week ahead!

There is an element of chance

In craving for that one last dance

The one that thrills anticipation

Yet flutters you with consternation

 

There is that element of a dream

Where it is not all that it may seem

Wonder consumes reality in its hours

Like heat condensed by a flash of showers

 

There is an element of magic around

Grace catches you without even a sound

Slowly spirals her sage incense in the air

You’re wise, cleansed, nothing left to fear

 

There is an element of fire in your eyes

There’ll be no more hesitation and empty sighs

The dawn breaks open sparkling rays of light

Bubbling celebrations will fill the dim of night

 

The element of chance I found waiting for me

Is the same one I’m hoping will set you free.

 

 

Dear Friends, it’s that time of the week when I invite you to join me when the sun sets- have that last glass of wine or if you are in the South like I am, in the middle of Winter – have some decadent hot chocolate. Whatever your flavour, sit back and relax for a while. The year is racing ahead and the world can sometimes be a complex place so if you are looking for some escape – come along with me for a while. I’ve so enjoyed picking out songs every week since I rediscover old favourites or discover new favourites. For those of you who loyally follow this post – I thank you. I invite you also to read Joan’s comments in my comments section and visit her at Just Joan

Her comments are an absolute delight and are part of the fun of doing this post. Thanks also to Tracy from A Joyful Process who is a Music Guru of note. Please listen up for his additions to my list. Today, is the penultimate post in this season of Sunday coming down in which I’ve selected musicians whose names begin with “W”. Next week I will group X,Y and Z . I have an idea for a new season of Sunday coming down after that. Well, it’s dark outside down South and time to wish you a great week ahead! 💞💞

Yes, I will

 

Wait for the warmth of your breath

As you whisper in my ear

Calling my name.

 

Yes, I’m ready

 

To sip wine from your harvest

Tasting the soil and human toil

As you kiss my lips

 

Yes, I’m coming

 

With the river’s great rush

Feeling it’s caress on my skin

As I take all of you in

 

Yes, I promise

 

That I’ll watch the blush with you

Of sunrise and sunsets

As your fire fuels my flame

 

Yes, I must

 

Breathe the crisp fresh fragrance

Of your mountains and forests

As I lie down with you

 

Yes, I know

 

All your cracks and fault lines

Still I see the beauty in you

Yes, I love you all the same

 

I hope Sunday has been good to you so far and as the sun comes down on you, sit back and relax to the smooth sounds I’ve selected for this week’s Sunday coming down. I’ve had to skip the letter “U” today since I don’t have anything suitable from my collection. So today’s selection of R&B and Smooth Jazz to usher in a great week ahead comes from musicians whose names begin with the letter: “V”. Enjoy it y’all!!
