Ode To Water by Windsong Martin 2010
The Waters of the Earth in all of her forms are in serious need of prayer and healing.
There is only a finite amount of water on this planet.
The same water that we use today was being used millions of years ago.
Never has the water been so abused.
We all must be more conscious and take care of our Water for the future generations.
This song was given to me by the water and was written upon my return from the 6th Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, in Lincoln City, OR 2009. This tribute was inspired by the heartfelt prayers of Agnes
Baker Pilgrim, the late Corbin Harney and countless others around the
world who are focused on healing the Water.
It has been my experience that any time this song
is sung there is a transmission of great blessing and
harmony for the singers, the audience and the
I hope many people will learn it and
share it around the world to inspire gratitude and
awareness for our Precious Water.

“Astrological Aspects of the “Ode
to Water” Song”
The astrology sign Pisces is a water sign representing the spiritual
or psychic aspect of water. When recording the first take of “Ode
to Water”, Windsong went to Tucson and stayed with Lisa Thiel
over the Full Moon in February 2010. At this auspicious time, the
Sun (vital life force) was in Pisces, Jupiter (good fortune, blessings)
was in Pisces, Venus (love and inspiration) was in Pisces, and finally
Uranus (the lighting-bolt awakening planet) was in Pisces. This
created an especially open and auspicious container for creating
the harmonies and vocal over-lays which came thru. One part came
from the river in Sabino canyon, Arizona.
Later, when Lisa did the cover painting “Mother Water,”
as a gift for Windsong’s birthday, she wanted to capture that magic again,
so she painted it during all three moon phases in the water signs:
Moon in Scorpio- power or transformation,
Moon in Pisces- mysticism and spiritual influence,
and Moon in cancer-the Great Mother energy.
During all of this period Jupiter, the good fortune/ blessing planet,
Pisces, the mystical water sign,
and closer to the earth than it has been in 50 years, signifying
great spiritual blessings.
The final recording was done with the expert assistance of Dennis
Dragon at the Pacifica Studios in Williams Or. on the full moon
in June 2010, right after the Good Medicine Women’s Gathering
2010, live with Windsong, Lisa Thiel, Di Patterson and Kat Del Rio
singing. The spirited instrumental parts were added later by Al
Torre on guitar, the late Brett Claytor on Keys, Richard Cole on
Bass and Dennis Dragon on drums.
The song and art were uploaded to the web on the Full Moon in November, 2010.
This song has a truly unique spirit.
