The following nonet was inspired by Colleen Chesebro’s weekly poetry challenge and a song. This week’s words are “fly” and “sing,” and you’ll note that I used “carry tunes” and “soaring” as synonyms. You can click the button below the poem to hear me recite it, then play and sing the song that also inspired it.
SINGING CHRISTMAS PRAISES
During the holiday season, I
carry tunes of joy, peace, hope, love,
celebrate this holy night
of the blessed Saviour’s birth
with soaring voice, heart,
fall to my knees
Thanks to Bruce Atchison for inspiring me to post this. The song Bruce posted is about living in a world without pain. “Imagine” is about living in a world without war, hatred, greed, or hunger. Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world of love, joy, peace, and plenty? Enjoy, and have a great Saturday.
We Shall Overcome How to Build a Better Mousetrap: Recollections and Reflections of a Family Caregiver
In light of events in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend, this song offers hope that maybe someday, we can overcome bigotry and hatred and live in peace. The name also happens to be the title of my first book. Despite all the violence in the world, I hope you can have a great Saturday.
