Thank you Aretha. We will always be grateful you were, and are, part of our soundtrack.
Once upon a schoolday an English teacher said
“Poetry is an art, an art to be read”
She talked and talked more and more to convey her definition
All I heard were rules to achieve complicated rendition
Assignments were made to put pen to paper
With constraints on my mind every verse was a scraper
Today my expressions flow freely from my finger tips
I find writing is almost as easy as if it were crossing my lips
Rules have a place to make a Society most suitable
But freedom from limits allows articulation to become transmutable
This Beard, this certain Fearsome Beard, made the commitment to his soul last week to search for inspiration, search for beauty, search for passion and search for his own talent. He committed to try. To try to not only seek and to find but to enact. Trial through action to take himself to a higher level.
The next step has been taken, if only one foot has left the ground. With many steps ahead may my success exceed even my wildest dreams.
Beauty, passion, inspiration lie everywhere. All we must do is appreciate, accept and live. Live to the fullest.
Damn, ain’t ZZ Top just great? Damn great.
A poet I’ve never been
Verse I’ve never written
Words I’ve never bent
Feelings never expressed
Meanings never explored
Yet my mind searches
Yet my mind wonders
Without training could I be?
Could I be?
Could I express feeling
Could I bend word, search meaning
Might I create
I might just communicate
It had been a while
A while since we first met
The fun, smiles, laughter, excitement
The message came through
Yes, yes I remember!
A plan to meet
Anticipation builds, memories swirl
The time comes, the time passes
No message, no word
Was it a dream?
One of many of the masterpieces of Led Zeppelin.
I sit in awe.
It is time.
It’s time I stepped up and took my career, my interests, my motivation and my life to the next level.
I’ve been busy. I’ve been stuck. I’ve done a lot. I’ve not done enough.
Therefore I look. I look for inspiration. I seek inspirational things.
Tonight I start with music. Who is my favorite? What music moves me? Which will elnlighten me, inspire me, uplift me and move me?
Inspires those around you.
