Early in the morning (The Rising Sun), Marieta StoychevaThe Rising Sun, Preslava Petrova


Behold the rising sun, 
sending brilliant light, 
filling life with joy and new delight.
(Repeat from "Behold")
Living power, springing flowing power. (Repeat 4 times) 
Zoun me zoun, zoun me zoun, binom tou meto. (Repeat 2 times) 
(Repeat from the beginning) 



We are at one with nature, gaining strength from it. In the first part our arms are the Sun, which rises, we benefit from the solar energies. In the second part, our hands are springing waters, springs, we benefit from the water energies. In the third part we perform the ongoing exchange between us and nature in our lives. The natural processes are the sunrise and the spring gushing forth from the earth: beginning of display of light, warmth, water. In people these processes are metaphor for the appearance of something new, of possibilities, talent, idea, feeling, inspired by the vital powers of nature.

"The arms make arch-like movements upwards and to the sides, and then come back to the chest. Afterwards the hands make scooping movements which imitate the gushing forth of spring waters. The first part represents the process of originating of something new. All solar energies go into the person so that s/he can grow and develop. The second part represents how life-giving forces flow through us like mighty waters". [Beinsa Douno, Paneurhythmy, p.80], 

Zoun Mezoun, zoun mezoun: “The whole of our life, all of our life”. Binom Toumeto: “Let it now be so!” [Beinsa Douno,Paneurhythmy, 2004, p.71]
