Thread Name: Songwriting Under Pressure
Subject: RE: Songwriting Under Pressure
I have a file folder filled with ideas and beginnings of songs. I also keep some of my poems and lyrics on the computer, but at the idea and incomplete stages, everything just gets thrown into the file folder. Actually, there is no completed stage. I keep on changing words and phrases here and there. I suppose if I were to try to record any of them, I'd have to decide on a final version.

I think this new one might be at the computer stage. Then I'll let you read it.

Meanwhile, how about a wee spring poem from the vaults?

lake shines in the sunrise
ripples cause the fallen night stars to dance
stars take a partner
feet move with waking will
past sand rings
to the breathing rock
join wave on wave in newmelt flow
and dance we round and dance we go
all the stars i see
take flight!

(d.c. May 2000)

All for now.... ~b.w.
