Freedom Cancelled #poetry #alzheimers

rose bud bloom decided on its own colour catching random raindrops she danced each spring a calla lily ivory  water cup opens like a scroll makes my heart sing dry dusty petals always winter a ballerina once no longer remembering **** a swan song the seasons changed her dance robbed of her wings  

Playing the Harp #poetry

  meld rosewood and sinew to one harp knowing each caress  stroke fire into song  fingers, loving press practice lasting long  night melody persists  moonlit arias never gone  pause for noted rest  crescendo dance with dawn musician and instrument one *** Tension in the strings notes crash against the shore concentric circles * Today’s prompt […]

Speechless #poetry

a season past where tears formed streams cherry blossoms now burst in spring where lightening seared a rift in oak the vine is mending a path of hope the winter offered barren cold there’s feasting in our forest I’m told voices seek two hearts to mend harmonic tones a heavenly blend dawn’s release of sun […]

Without A Song #music #poetry #haiku

If I could write a song for you it would go something like this: Without fingers to stroke without a voice to sing these instruments stand with little meaning *** but there was a day that we’d  dance and we’d play long into the midnight hours *** memories alone warm these keys of practice and […]

First Light #poetry #photography #sundaydevotion

Beneath the first light I raise my heart in supplication lift me up Oh Lord off my trembling knees life’s burdens can keep me down * Beneath the first light I raise my eyes to meet the sun reflections of grace dance on the hillside I am beckoned to dance nature comes alive * Beneath the first […]

Second Fiddle #poetry #art #music

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
