WINTER OF DREAMS (Chris Pelcer/Laura Powers) I see your face in fields of snow Hear your voice in winds that blow You've left me with this memory That's haunting my winter of dreams In my dreams we still return To summer fields where our love burned In clover green where we once lay Those were, my love, the brightest days So like the wildflowers neath the ice My heart is still, cold and quiet As Winter awaits the kiss of Spring I long for warmth your touch would bring But now the chill is in my bones Like when you said you had to go You took the love you gave to me And left this long winter of dreams © Powervibe Music /Million Suns Music

I SURRENDER ALL (Chris Pelcer/L. Powers) True love conquers Temptation haunts the heart denied Timeless, ageless Throught the mist I see your eyes No matter how I try I'm drawn in by the tide Sun and moon, earth and sky I hold in my power For you, my love, defenses fall And I surrender all All my senses And resistance come undone Thunder and lightening Surround me as I run Through the fields of fire I give in to desire Sun and moon, earth and sky I hold in my power For you, my love, defenses fall And I surrender all All of the heavens have conspired To bring us together for all time © Powervibe Music /Million Suns Music

CIRCLE OF STONE (Laura Powers/David Lloyd) Wind across Salisbury Plain Ancient stones stand in the rain Silhouettes against the stormy night I walk in a counter spiral Outside of this sunless dial Waiting, hoping, watching for a sign I see shadows form and disappear In shades of grey The flicker of a thousand lights Voices are calling from another time and place The name that echos here is mine Circle of stone I step inside Falling through the window of time Oh, Circle of stone Circle of stone Starts to spin No beginning and no end Oh, Circle of stone As I turn the storm above me rolls away To reveal a dome of stars The milky way seems to wink at me as if to say We know exactly where you are Circle of stone Turns inside Falling through the window of time Oh, Circle of stone Circle of stone Forever spins No beginning and no end Oh, Circle of stone Rising to the highest plane Nothing's left undone In the universal plan All things are one Circle of stone Turns inside I reach back through the window of time Oh, Circle of stone Circle of stone Forever spins No beginning and no end Oh, Circle of stone Wind across Salisbury Plain Ancient stones stand in the rain Silhouettes against the stormy sky I walk in a clockwise spiral Step out of this sunless dial, back into the darkness of the night © Powervibe Music /Singing Kiva Publishing

SAMHAIM MADRIGAL (Laura Powers/Chris Pelcer) A time of change a time of endless night The sea grows dark, swallowing the light I walk alone high above the shore I count the days till you sail home once more A time of prayer no matter where you are You'll find my love will guide you like the stars I'll be with you to keep you from the cold No greater love could watch over your soul And I long for how I long for The sweetness we have known And I long for how I long for The wind that brings you home The crescent moon lays still against the sky A veil of mist plays tricks upon my eyes Your ship appears like whispers in the wind My heart awaits the passing of Samhain How I long for how I long for The sweetness that we have known How I long for how I long for The wind that brings you home A time of prayer no matter where you are You'll find my love will guide you like the stars I'll be with you to keep you from the cold No greater love could watch over your soul A time of change a time of endless night The sea grows dark, swallowing the light I walk alone high above the shore I count the days till you sail home once more Your ship appears like whispers in the wind My heart awaits the passing of Samhain © Powervibe Music /Million Suns Music

MORRIGHAN'S QUEST (Laura Powers/Chris Nole) She flies by the light of the hunter moon Onward for the prophecy to come true Soaring above the trees Swift as an arrow speeds She hears the pounding of the drums They call her for the battle to be won She must arrive by dawn For her to lead them on Black raven queen of night She brings her strength and might For victory Long ago in her ancient crystal cave She learned of the warriors she would save Her quest and destiny To set her people free Black raven queen of night She brings her strength and might For victory Black raven queen of night She brings her strength and might For victory Black raven queen of night The hour has arrived For victory © Powervibe Music /Strathmere Music

THE HUNT IS SWEETEST (Laura Powers) You're fair game in the moonlight Your scent is floating through the air You're fair game in the moonlight And I can tell that you're near The deepest woods cannot hide you The silver light will soon find you The hunt is sweetest When my prize When my prize When my prize is you You're fair game in the moonlight I wait and watch by this tall tree You're fair game in the moonlight However you run you'll come back to me Waiting here in the dark, my love My heart beats like a captive dove The hunt is sweetest When my prize When my prize When my prize is you © Powervibe Music

Tir Na Nóg 04:43
TIR NA NÓG LAND OF THE EVER YOUNG (Laura Powers/Chris Pelcer) As I look out Upon your hillside I can see beyond the veil Stories left in stone Some forever unknown Tir na nóg A treasure for all time Jewel of green Beneath the northern sky Ancient as the sun Land of the ever young I walk your shores I feel your spirit Rise and fall With the changing tide It's here my heart remains On the wind that carries your name Tir na nóg A treasure for all time Jewel of green Beneath the northern sky Ancient as the sun Land of the ever young Hear her calling Lady of the well Healing waters Cast her spell Tir na nóg A treasure for all time Jewel of green Beneath the northern sky Ancient as the sun Land of the ever young © Powervibe Music /Million Suns Music

THE GODDESS OF THE HUNTER MOON (Laura Powers/David Lloyd) The winter was long, the frost was severe No game had been brought down In this famine year The ground is still frozen the fields still lay bare New growth in the woods was stunted and spare So they gathered together, together they prayed A meal would be brought forth on this holy day Invoking her name to deliver them soon The Goddess of the Hunter Moon They built a great fire reaching up to the sky And watched the full moon take command of the night Into the clearing came a buck and a boar As if offering themselves in silent accord The people rejoiced at the bountiful feast In awe of the great power of the unseen They gave thanks and praised her for seeing them through The goddess of the hunter moon © Powervibe Music /Singing Kiva Publishing

My Avalon 04:27
MY AVALON (Laura Powers/Chris Nole) There's a place in-between My thoughts and my dreams That touches me deeply Light, shadows and beams In shades of blue and green And I'm lost completely It's been a part of me always I've known this forever Where the sky meets the ocean Through the mist there, just beyond It's the haven I long for My Avalon There's a song from inside That pulls like the tide When I'm here alone From another time and place A melody of grace Is calling me home And I'm filled with the sweet sound I close my eyes and I follow Where the sky meets the ocean Through the mist there, just beyond It's the haven I long for My Avalon © Powervibe Music /Strathmere Music

Song of One 05:51
SONG OF ONE (Laura Powers) I know not where my heart will lead me I only know I have begun A journey to embrace all people And we shall sing the song of one The world is weary from the struggle Her children crying to be free Have we not seen enough of fighting To fly high on the wings of peace Someday we will stand together Our hearts clear our voices strong Through the long dark night that passes We shall sing the song of one I believe that day is coming And we shall sing the song of one © Powervibe Music

about

Laura invites you to explore a collection of songs that are richly textured with Celtic instrumentation, layered vocal harmonies and that draw from the imagery and legends of the ancient Celtic goddess. Combining folk, pop, and classical elements you're invited to experience the musical journey and be transported to another place and time. Reach through the portal of time with a mystical experience at Stonehenge (Circle of Stone), fly on the raven's wing as Morrighan prepares to meet her destiny (Morrighan's Quest) and journey to the quiet place "in-between my thoughts and my dreams" (My Avalon) that so many of us seek.
