#50 Ki Tabo (Maqam Sigah)
Maqam - a set of notes, with traditions that define the relationship between them, their patterns and expression. A musical mode. The Maqamat (plural) are patient, inwardly drawn, they are roomy enough for poetry. We worked the concept of the give-and-take between poetry and music.
When you enter the land go to the holy man
take baskets of first fruits go where G*d tells
you give your baskets to the holy man then tell
him what happened, in brief: we have been lost
we are coming home.
End the story with gratitude bow down and sit
together with the holy ones and the strangers
among you have lunch together set up large
stones inscribe these teachings every word on
Shhh -- find your silence today you have
become a people of G*d live in that for a long
time let blessings pour out of you be a fountain
after each blessing thunder amen.
You will be blessed in the city and in the
suburbs through your children yourselves and
your ancestors blessed will you be in your
coming and in your going blessed will you be
at the top and at the bottom the whole thing will
You will be blessed among the huts and other
holy places there might be some curses too so
