Sunday Muse #140


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays, Musers! 

We're on the edge of a new year and while you may know my preference for schemes over resolutions, maybe there are other ways to organize those things we hope for, those things we'll miss, and those things we are sure we don't see coming than either schemes or resolutions. I hope that this is a good space for exploring the pauses. How will the in-between poems turn out?

Sunday Muse #139

Hello and welcome, Musers! Fireblossom here with your weekly picture prompt. This time we have a photograph of the late singer/songwriter Laura Nyro. She wrote fabulous, original lyrics like this one, from "Stony End":

"Never mind the forecast 

cos the sky has lost control

and the fury of the rolling thunder's 

come to match my raging soul"

Or this, from "Sweet Blindness":

"Down by the grapevine, drink my daddy's wine

Good mornin'!

Don't let daddy hear it,

he don't believe in the gin mill spirits

Come on, baby, do a slow float

You're a good lookin' river boat

and ain't that sweet-eyed blindness good to me"

Let the picture speak to you and come back and link what you wrote so we can stop by and read.
