LET THE MUSIC PLAY IN MAY

Greetings to everyone,

I hope that you are all well, and that you had a wonderful weekend.  April is winding down, and that means summer is really near.  I am going to dedicate May to music related artwork.  I have some lyrics I want to share with you, which some are new and a few are from the ancient days of my youth.  I also have 3 wonderful works of art I have been working on that are related to music in one way or another.  I am beginning work on a collage of artwork from friends who agreed to let me create a YouTube slide show with awesome music, poetry, and much more.  It will be downloaded here for everyone to enjoy towards the end of the month.  If you would like to take part, or have a work of art you would like to see in it, just note me and we will see what we can do to include it in the slideshow. 

I want to thank everyone who read and supported my recent journal series on banned books from the bible.  I had hundreds of readers and dozens of responses.  I did not know it would be that popular so I am going to do another one soon...

I just have to do a plug for my friend Crayon, who has a cute little vignette series called 'Big Tiger & Little Kitten.'  You guys just have to read these, they are so cute.  I promise you, you will love it.  I have fallen in love with this series, and just adore the characters.  Here are the links to all four parts she has so far...

POETRY CORNER

:iconparalyticprocess:Tulips for You by KmyGraphic :iconparalyticprocess:

Daylight Savings TimeIt was not spring when you died
   though I wish it was.
In this grief I am selfish
    tossed upon the memory pyre
    but I was always the first
           at least, you told me so.
Shortest breaths follow our longest days,
              you said, smiling
              but we both knew this world was
                     too small
                     for the both of us.
You sighed, and became an echo on the horizon
       our destinies before us:
              I rise, youthful
                 in the east
              you set, eternal
                   
CrepitusYou would kill them, slowly.
       Every slug on the wet sidewalk, a silent victim
                  to your salt revolver
                  and I would say nothing.
I would never stand up to you,
  my voice cowering in its box.
Maybe I was terrified, a slug myself
             or maybe I liked to watch things die as well.
But that would make me a murderer
       and I don’t think I am ready.
Not yet.
                Not now.
So I took several quiet minutes to gather my voice from the cobwebs
    and when I opened my chapped lips to tell you
            you cut me off at the knees.
-D.E.M
MachinistYou fell on a grenade.
I tore through you like
  teeth through meat
             your resiliency
             pulsing and wet
  on a bone plate.
You had told me you did not want to go
       clinging to my breast, fearful
                      but I was not willing to entertain
                      the sum of your tears.
Eventually, my dear boy
                    death reaps everything we sow.
You had told me you did not want to go
       heaving
       but I was not meant to protect you
              forever.
-D.E.M
Daylight Savings TimeIt was not spring when you died
   though I wish it was.
In this grief I am selfish

Shortest breaths follow our longest days,
              you said, smiling
              but we both knew this world was
                     too small
                     for the both of us.
You sighed, and became an echo on the horizon

                 in the east
              you set, eternal

You're right: I *do* adore BT & LK! :love: The artist has done a fab job, of bringing together two very different felines! :heart:

It reminds me very much of some of those old lion-and-lamb/lion-and-mouse-type stories, that one hears so much about, as a child! Oh, how I miss my childhood!! :sniff:

Always a pleasure to read and watch, dear David.
Though I missed the last one. done a quick read I'm afraid.
I think things shouldn't be censured on such an important book for any other for that matter... religions are messy sometimes.
None should have the power to cut off things because they don't approve, lay down under the carpet to be forgotten... and so on.

Agreed. The travesty is that so many of these wonderful works were burned and destroyed forever. :(

Yeah, the ugliest thing is that it continues remember the time when they wanted to burn and banish Mark Twain's books saying they were subversive?
