30 Days of Poetry: Day #11

Day 11: Write a poem based on your favorite lyric

 

I am overcome by the process of living

With what they throw back and what I can catch

And I try to pull the buckets of tears over my sail

To take me out to the vastness.

And I see your arms and a stretch it made

From your skin brought a wave

Of a happy disaster, what a surprise.

And as the wave cast, Your sweat pushed me through,

To the undiscovered temples.

And your words salted my tongue and eyes

As bubbles orbed around me

And we floated past the waving grass.

“My life in an upturned boat, marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood
And you gave me a lift
To care, what a gift
You tell me with your tongue
And your breath was in my lungs
And you float over the rift”

“Simple Song” by The Shins

New Inspiration: Björk Releases New Single “Blissing Me”

Björk will be releasing a new album Utopia this November 24th. She has released two singles “The Gate” and “Blissing me”

Björk’s latest single released yesterday. Of course, I impulsively dropped what I was doing and clicked the youtube video. At the first ten words, she said I paused the video and threw my phone. She forever will be indescribably beautiful. The lyrics along with what I believe to a harp just filled my insides with this new kind of beauty that I have not yet been able to see and feel since probably her Vespertine album. Of course, I have seen her musical beauty in Biophilia and Vulnicura, however, this beauty that I am talking about is something so pure and innocent. Almost eclectic and emotional. It makes me think of love, relationship, beauty, sex, and passion. Which is pretty much the same feeling I would get when I would listen to Vespertine or the song “Stonemilker” from Vulnicura. The album Vespertine is personally one of my most favorite collective albums of Björk’s, and in this single, “Blissing Me”, I have gotten the taste again of her emotional diary

Walking

 

Special times are always

And too surreal that I want to bite my cheek off

or fall down the stairs

Just to wake myself from this dream.

 

And while we walk on the side walks

I can see you look at me

And the days are burning our skin.

 

The suns gets in my eyes

but I can still see yours brighter.Image result for sunlight and sidewalk aesthetic

SOTW #15

GOOOOOOD Afternoon!

For this weeks SOTW here is a little taste of the artist CUCO. Who is an 18 year old Chicano artist. I may have mention about on of his songs a long time ago. The one I a currently listening to is

Lover Is A Day

There is other songs but this one is always on my mind.

Last night my boyfriend told me that CUCO is coming to Austin, Texas in October. And of course…I want to go!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe week, my prayers are out to my fellow Texans during Hurricane Harvey.

If you have any music recommendations PLEASE let me know!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
