Early Morn

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!
