First and foremost I want to thank Mike Schulenberg, friend extraordinaire, for all his help when my internet connection went a little bonkers last week. I was ecstatic to see my blog post, “Mood Music” featured on WordPress’ Freshly Pressed and then tortured that I wasn’t able to respond right away to the majority of comments until later. So thank you, Mike, for posting on my behalf to explain the situation. I am truly grateful for all of you who took the time to look at, read, or comment on my post. You are all very much appreciated!
I recently spent some time at the beach – I haven’t had my toes in the sand in a very long time and am allowing the experience to influence my writing a bit. Please indulge me. I was listening to the music below as I wrote, so I thought I would include for you to enjoy, as well.
One Grain by Sheila Pierson
Angry waves slap fearful flesh,
My feet fight to stand on the shifting ground beneath
Life washes in and out like the tide, foamy bubbles of
Happiness, grief and silence rise to the surface, making an
Appearance of importance
If I drown in your salty skin will you absorb me?
Take me then, down to the depths of your seduction
Entreat my bones to give up their fleshy covering
Give me over to the inhabitants of your world,
Your thunderous roar covers my cries of surrender
It is with this, as with need and hunger, and all that wills the soul
To reach and gnaw and feed on that which is prey
How’s your week going? How’s your writing going? Please share…
