Album Notes
This song was written in honor of and inspired by the black Arabian mare Tabula Rasa, at the EponaQuest center in Arizona, USA, during an intensive workshop on what is called Black Horse Wisdom, or the ability we have to journey into other realms of consciousness and create from there. It was recorded by Steve Roach just days before Rasa’s passing on May 9th, 2011. For me, it marked the return to my creativity as a songwriter and the start of a journey on a long and winding road back to making music – sometimes doubling back, sometimes leaping forward.

Rasa’s Song

I know who you are, I have seen you before
Round sounds and round eyes and soft face, nothing more
The rhythm of hooves on pebbles or sand
The black horse’s nose softly touches my hand

Rasa erases and brings back a smile
Watching her walking around for a while
Hopeful, perceptive, a smell in the air
Of hay and of hope, coming from over there

Badaboom, badaboom go my galloping hooves
The steed of my pride has got nothing to prove
“Proof is for humans” so says the black horse
And doesn’t look back, maintaining her course

Evening is falling and so are the stars
Like pearls on her skin they will shine from afar
To keep you from harm and to show you the way
Watching your step every night, every day

Melody wavering, promising sound
Coming and going like wisdom profound
Swells with the river and eases wit grace
Leaving a tear on the black horse’s face
Vanishing slowly and without a trace
But leaving a tear on the black horse’s face
