In 2013, Talk Listen Door expanded to a quintet that included the beautiful talents of Abigale Reisman (violin) and Borey Shin (accordion). That same year, songwriter and lead vocalist Leah Hennessy collaborated with painter Kristin Texeira in a creative exchange called "In Response". "a season of calm weather" was written as a response to Texeira's painting of the same name. This track was recorded live at Third Life Studios, Somerville, MA in August 2015.


do not disturb the halcyon
resting out at sea
speak softly to me.

white Winter lies quiet
still as
snow on sand on snow
as the sheet across your legs
the bedspread.

your words as though through filtered down
filter down
flushed and warm
a kinder thing
time and tide will take them from me
I must trace them on my heart

while the halcyon is still at sea
calm weather resides between you and me
