Walkabout

One morning Jason woke up
and decided to go walkabout
He packed a few things
and said goodbye to his friends,
and while they played and sang
a song for the road,
he walked away

♫ ♫ ♫

Dropping jacaranda seeds
along the way,
Jason left a trail of trees,
so that one day he would be able
to find his way home

♫ ♫ ♫

Hey, man
Got any spare change?
asked a beggar

No, man
I’m broke, too
Would you accept a song?

Sure

And so Jason took out his guitar
and began to play,
and when he began to sing,
a rainbow came flying through the sky
and landed nearby,
illuminating a pot of gold
in some tall grass

What’s mine is yours,
said Jason

Yes, let’s share it,
agreed the beggar

And so they helped themselves
to pieces of gold,
and then continued on
their separate ways

♫ ♫ ♫
Jason,
Come home with me tonight,
said Temptation

Okay

And so he went
to bed with Temptation
and stayed the night

♫ ♫ ♫

Stay forever
here with me
Be mine,
Jason

I cannot stay
I must be free
to love
I am a bee
I visit many flowers

And so Jason took leave
of Temptation
and continued down his path,
picking flowers along the way

♫ ♫ ♫

And as he wandered
through a meadow
with millions of flowers
swaying for attention,
one called out

Hello, Jason

G’day, Flower

Would you like to try my pollen?

Well, yes
I would

Then come inside me

And so Jason entered Flower

♫ ♫ ♫

I am a free flower, you know
Many bees visit me

I don’t mind

You’re welcome back anytime

Thank you
for the moment

And then Jason headed off
towards the sound of drumming,
and as he drew near,
he slipped into another vibration

♫ ♫ ♫

Welcome to the circle,
drummed the drummers

So Jason took out his djembe,
joined the circle
and began to play

♫ ♫ ♫

And as the drummers drummed,
a voice from another dimension
began to send out waves of love

♫ ♫ ♫

The drummers stopped
and magic space music
filled the air

Welcome to the sacred family,
Jason
We have three messages for you:

Quality over quantity

Live
and die
like a flower

Be love

Thank you,
brothers
Thank you,
sisters

Would you like a cookie
for the road?

I reckon that’d be nice
Thank you

And so Jason ate
a space cookie
and took off

♫ ♫ ♫

Overflowing with love,
Jason became a magnet,
attracting love,
harmony,
peace

Life is a precious moment
filled with love,
he thought
as he wandered
from village to village,
allowing himself to be seduced
by life

Singing and playing
for his meals,
for a bed;
befriending all,
Jason traveled,
in tune
