Creative Notes: Posts

These are a few posts from the past that readers found, and that I then rediscovered from the stats for this site. I also use the Top Posts & Pages widget (filed under Menu), which provides information and may help new readers get an overview of the content here.

Yesterday, I mentioned a few pages from this site.

Photo of the Moon Shining on Lake Michigan, Recalling a Joni Mitchell song, is a post from May 2010. There is a photo by Karl and a quote from a song by Joni Mitchell.

Acrostic for WIND was also inspired by music. I was listening to a CD by Sarah McLachlan – please see the post for the poem and more information. Sarah covered a song by Susan Enan, “Bring On The Wonder.”

Over the years, I have received good feedback about this poem:

IT IS IMPORTANT

To have a vision
to sustain the effort
to see it all the way
through – –

Even when it seems
to leave you

It Is Important was published first in Time Of Singing.

Poem and Photos

warm memories
and new beginnings
a yellow bird
lights on the branches
with a few gold leaves
