#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 

the stones.


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 

be blessed.


You will be blessed among the huts and other 

holy places there might be some curses too so 

be careful.
