True Friendship

TRUE FRIENDSHIP

Time spent together
Ephemeral as flowers
Yet it continues

Balance

BALANCE

The opposition
(Unbeknown) simply poot forth
That which they oppose

Spring Chorus

SPRING CHORUS

So many voices
Naturally singing true
Feeding fresh fledgling

Out Of Balance

OUT OF BALANCE

Intellect needs heart
Without care its achievements
Only end in tears

Don’t look a gift horse
In the mouth the saying goes
That’s where the fangs are
But they never tell you that
Or the reason why they don’t

Overreach

OVERREACH

A single hand clap
Intended to rouse the world
Just startled the cat

Second Hand Roses

SECOND HAND ROSES

Elsewhere they tell us
Now has already happened
And is in the past

The Kiss

THE KISS

Perhaps you may keep
The silver you have taken
But never the gold

Sheep

SHEEP

I’ve always loved sheep
But people who act like them
Perhaps not so much

Five Day Song Challenge: Day Six

Audrey Dawn – The Oldest Daughter & Red Headed Sister suggested I address myself to meeting this challenge. Two difficulties arise: I. as long time readers will know, I have already posted a number of my favourites so they aren’t eligible; 2. I am by necessity limited to tracks which are freely available on line. In retaliation I decided not to further restrain myself to sticking solely to tracks with lyrics.

Well guess what? I discovered that my pick for Day Two *has* been posted here before. I used it as a Happy New Year message at the end of 2011. So I’m playing a substitute. And happily this means that now I have posted five tracks which are all songs. 🙂
