Good evening Writers.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. I took a little drive to Idyllwild. I haven’t been in the town before. It was so pretty. Beautiful weather! I felt inspired as I walked the town and through the galleries. I had lunch at a cafe with very good food.
“Oh for the wonder that bubbles into my soul.”

I have been listening to some music from my era, 60s and 70s rock and roll. As a teenager I listened to the words but never really listened. There were some great poets posing as rock stars.
The next time you can take a few minuets kick back with some Beatles, Rolling Stones, Heart or any others you think you might like. Really listen to the words.
The poetry is wonderful.
So for today pick a song that you like or one you haven’t hear before. Really take a risk and try Rap. Some of it is great. See if you can pick out a few phrases and
write them down. I like,
“You can’t always get what you want, But if you try sometimes,
Well you just might find you get what you need!”
These are simple words. But how could you turn this into a poem or a story about a young girl running around looking for all the wrong things to make her happy.
“Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall…”
That one could be fun.
Have a good week.
