Hive Open Mic Week #52, "In This Moment" ~ Original Song

in Hive Open Mic2 months ago

This week's #hiveopenmic theme is "Freedom" and a lovely theme to explore many different avenues. Thank you, @natashamartinez for the great choice.

I am really enjoying listening to the wonderful variety of music here each week and am eternally grateful to be part of this wonderful community.


It's still the Easter Break here, so I was relegated to my bedroom to record this haha. Maybe that's a bit ironic, trapped in a bedroom to record a song about Freedom, but at least tucked away in there, I had the freedom to explore this theme with a new song.

I wanted to explore my personal feeling of freedom in this song. I love nature, and the way I feel at peace when I am in a forest or by the sea.

Being in touch with the natural world brings a feeling of peace to my soul. By observing the sounds and the sights, helps to make me feel present. I often like to walk barefoot which helps with the connection to our mother Earth.

I feel that if we really want, we can be free anywhere we choose if we can resonate with the natural environment. it's a feeling I like to bring with me when I am unable to physically be there. A kind of meditation and that's what I hope is reflected in the song.

I hope you enjoy...

In This Moment

As the sun rises up to greet me
Feel the warmth upon my skin
Open eyes to see her beauty
Closed eyes to feel from within

Ooh here in this moment
Ooh I feel so free

Take me down to the water
In amongst the trees
Flow calmly as my heart beats
Feel it washing over me

Ooh I am present in this moment
Free to be me

Sometimes the beaten path is lonely
So I make tracks on my own
So all the free souls can unite
Oh that's when we will be home

Stand like a tree in the forest
Nature nourishes my soul
Her beauty is my temple
It's here that I am home

Ooh I am grateful for her existence
Ooh I feel at ease
Ooh to feel her presence in this moment
Ooh, it feels so free

Oh this is so lovely. I adore you are finding your voice and sharing your music with the world. And even better, we get to hear it on HIVE!!! Love this start to my day. 😘😘😘 Can you put all your songs on Spotify too so I can listen to them all in one go and on repeat? 😍😍😍

Aww, thank you so much xx yes, I am certainly gaining more confidence with the open mic each week, it's great.

I can have a go at doing that, my friend has a recording studio setup so I'll try and get some mastered and up on Spotify xx

Aww love you, thank you beautiful for listening. It really means the world to me.

Big hugs xx

She's amazing, right? :<)

Excelente interpretación, además del acompañamiento de tu guitarra. Me sentí identificada con tu tema ya que al igual que tu siento libertad al entrar en contacto con la naturaleza, además de la paz que en ella encuentro, no soy buena en Ingles asi que tuve que ir al traductor para saber de tu publicación y de tu canción. Bendiciones.

Excellent interpretation, in addition to the accompaniment of your guitar.
I felt identified with your subject since, like you, I feel freedom when coming into contact with nature, in addition to the peace that I find in it, I am not good at English so I had to go to the translator to find out about your publication and your song. Blessings.

Muchas gracias @cochanet, y yo comprendo un pocito Espanol. Me sentimo muy feliz y libre en natura,

Gracias por tu comentario simpatico.

Abrazos a ti 💚✨😊

You are so very talented or is it experience? No idea how long ago you started... No matter what, your singing, guitar playing, song writing and overall vibe when you sing and play your guitar always make me smile and feel good.

Loved this on many levels!

Big hug :<)

Aww, thank you so much, my dear friend.

I learned to play guitar almost 3 years ago, have played piano by ear since age 5, not very well though as I struggled with learning sheet music.

I'm truly touched that my music makes you feel good.

Big hug to you too @vincentnijman
