The muse is a fickle mistress. Sometimes she arrives in the dawn's early light.
Sometimes it's music.
One day in April, 2013, I woke up with the inspiration to write a song about waking up...on a beautiful day;...and it became one of my favourite songs, 'Constable Sky'.
gentle transition into the waking hours
massaged by the sound of showers
reach and stretch and release your powers
timely reach for the day's brass ring
no time to hear the angels sing
you don’t want to miss a thing
taking a walk under a Constable sky
willing yourself to somehow fly
trying to avoid less you more I
A great way to wake up. Just recently, I had a 'deja vu' moment. Though this time, it was to wake up to a pun!
A woman at Heathrow Airport in London suddenly sees a friend that she hasn't seen for a long time. Her friend is initially startled and drops her money that she was extracting from her wallet onto the ground. The friend who startled her says, " You look so good....like you've dropped a number of pounds!!"
ahem....well at least the song is good!
