Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

Oscar Peterson

Happy Birthday Oscar

Peterson wrote pieces for piano, for trio, for quartet and for big band. He also wrote several songs, and made recordings as a singer. Probably his best-known compositions are "Canadiana Suite" and "Hymn to Freedom," the latter composed in the 1960s and inspired by the U.S. civil rights movement.


I couldn't ask  for more than a Sphere shape
I couldn't ask for more than Freedom

The Sky is an open book and The Clouds are talking through symbols

I couldn't ask for more than a sequence of Happy Accidents
That spilled into a Milky Way

I couldn't ask for more than a penny
I am a very lucky person

Thank you for visiting
