Beautiful Dreamer Sep23 by melodylowes Beautiful dreamer on darkening seas, hang-gliding dazzler on autumnal breeze; courage becomes you, in wedding-day white, reflections of moonshine as day loses light. Share this:FacebookEmailPinterestTwitterLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
See, isn’t ‘autumnal’ a cool word?
Totally! I love the freedom of poetry – we get to use ‘made up’ words along with the fancy ones! 🙂
That’s why Marilyn Chandler McEntyre among other believe poetry to be such an exact art. Finding just the right word for just the right thing is the great strength of poetry.
Songwriting, too – you only have a couple of minutes to convey your message. Like Josh Wilson would croon, ‘Get in, get out, and no one gets hurt.’ That adds to the incredible challenge and quality of poetic expression, yes?
I love it, and began singing it to the melody of “Beautiful Dreamer”–is that how you wrote it? Or is it just the jukebox in my brain? I’m late getting here tonight– God bless you–love, Caddo
The song was in my mind, but not the melody – music used to be so much a part of me, and that is one thing that hasn’t come back yet! Waiting for it!
Well, it’s an OLD song: “Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me…” can’t recall the next lines!
That’s the part when you fill it in with ‘la la la la’, right? 🙂
This is just perfect! 🙂 God bless you as you make the most of every breeze!
And you as well! 🙂
Wonderful words for plain little daisy!
She isn’t plain at all!
Thanks, Maria! Nice point – we often overlook the more ‘common’ items of beauty, and then risk losing out on something special!
This is true. Both your photo and poem show something special to us, something we might have overlooked. Sometimes too, we only notice imperfections in things. Photo composition and word composition bring us the truth of things.
You make writing sound like such an AMAZING thing! 🙂 I love how you put that – very noble. I guess the arts in general are meant to be a reflection of our lives and souls back to ourselves and others, right?
Yes! I agree, for the most part. Some artists, though, just want to take a snap of what they think is the real world, but even this reflects something, often a lot, about themselves.
Melody, I placed a temporary link to this lovely post on my Front Page.
Thank you Maria!!
You’re welcome – thank you!
