Lost and Found

“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.”
                                      Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy


lost in dream sublime
where ideas dance before me
Will-o-wisps in time

thrumming through my soul
words form in the abyss
and rise to make me whole

    1. You have to sign up for SoundCloud. Really not hard, once you get the hang of it! I "google" everything. There's lots of helpful explanations out there on how to link to your blog.

  18. The brevity is a perfect example of why words fascinate me or perhaps words are fascinated by me. Either way, they are there for me to turn to no matter what is going on, troubles or celebration. I am so grateful. Beautiful work, Ginny.
