"Frog With Wings"

This is a poem which I wrote many long years ago. To give it some context, I have had the frog in question following me around for all of my adult (not grown-up) life and it's orgins were back in my childhood. I was raised in Northern Minnesota not terribly far from where my father grew up. My mother was a southern girl from the state of Virginia and endured the northern climes, but we regularly vacationed in the south and were always surrounded by her large and loving family. My…

The Write Window



IMG_2180copycopysmall.jpg Autumn in Independence, Missouri image by etully
















Ruts in the writing life happen. We grasp our way through a story, do the research, and realize it’s not the one we’re supposed to tell. At least not yet. We bump along in that rut for awhile until a new path

appears, scattered with red and orange leaves,…

I'm a lifesaver.
By letting myself be me
I rescued my soul.

Just-sharpened pencils,
A new notebook with paper;
Smells like fresh knowledge.

The road less traveled

Is often a path

No highway signs

No charts of graphs

Sometimes it's with others…

There's never an end.
Although lives may start and stop,
We're just specks of time.

Traveling by train,
Click-clacking across the land
You see a lot more.

What Lyrics Speaks to Me? Good question.



Did you ever wonder why music touches everyone? I have. No matter how

young, old, or the culture it touches something very primitive in all

of us. Music has the power to make one laugh or cry or come together.

Music is magic. Don't believe me? Just watch a crowd at a concert no

matter the genre. Watch concert goers sing every verse to a ballad or

get swept away deep into a concerto. Watch a teen bop to a booming base

in a car or brood in the bedroom to the… Continue

Fueled by gasoline
And spurred by testosterone,
Street racing can kill.

Bison, tigers, whales;
Fading because we kill them.

What one lyric speaks to you when nothing else can and why?

I'm not quite used to this format, so forgive me if it's literally all over the place:





Besides

for certain scents , music is the purest path to the past to—time

travel of the senses. A song or lyric can immediately not just call

forth a memory, one single moment that you've pushed aside or just

simply forgot, but can set you right down in the middle of an entire

time period of your…

Wiffledust Creative Writing Challenge #11 - What one lyric speaks to you when nothing else can, and why?



This lyric is a gentle reminder to me that it's ok to be human.



----------



"Sometimes, even music cannot substitute for tears"
- Paul Simon, The Cool, Cool River, Rhythm of the Saints.



The power of music is strong. It's a fact. It's not always clear how or why these sounds affect us so much, but they do. People associate times and places in… Continue

A gentle breeze cools my ass.
