I have been threatening to write my first song in 35 years and I am hoping to record it by August 1. As you might know if you’ve checked out a few blogs, we are leaving our beloved Arizona behind to move to southern Ohio to be closer to my wife’s family. So needless to say, I have been busy getting this house sold and setting the table to buy what most likely will be our last home.
Our needs are few: ½ acre lot, 3BR 2BA wood-burning fireplace, pool, and fenced yard. Oh yeah, and hardwood floors. And mature trees on the lot.
I’ll keep you posted.
Check out my latest poem:
Sunrays through trees
Racing to damp places
Representing what comes next
Friendship, manufactured family
Earlier the better
The warmth of the sunshine as you allow it in with
The garden you could never grow
Swimming in flowers and bathing in their perfume
Monet would be proud
Your first child’s smile
Your soulmate, One True Love
Unconditional, temporary, unimaginable
Smoke-filled lungs begging stewardship
New generations smarting from lessons learned
I just got done watching Sea Biscuit starring Toby McGuire. I love that movie. As long as there are synapses still firing, I will emote and experience a gamut of emotions.
A timeless poem is one I can read over and over again and feel differently each time I do.
I hope you like it.
