Poetrics: The Wrong Direction


petitemagique

I adore music almost as much as I adore writing. Maybe because some lyrics could
easily be a poem? Or because some songs can lift me up and make me feel strong
again? I don’t know, but the fact is that music can sometimes describe my
feelings better than I can do so myself.

So, I combine them into something I call ‘Poetrics’.

Poetrics is a combination of lyrics from some of my favorite songs and poetry I write inspired by these songs.

I take the essence of the song, the meaning it has, and write a poem on that. Then I let the lyrics of the song dance through the poem.

Here you can find the Poetrics I have made so far. I hope you will enjoy them!

The Wrong Direction

Note: The lyrics always stay the property of the band or artist who wrote them. All the credit goes to them.

It’s the 4th of July, let the fireworks fly!!!

As Canada Day, 2014 has receded into our maple leaf memories, rising up to greet us a few days later is the 4th of July!

The “4th of July” is also known as, “Independence Day”; in 1776, the United States affirmed its independence from (then, “Great Britain”) the United Kingdom.  The thirteen colonies who were then at war with Britain, considered themselves each an independent sovereign state, and no longer part of Britain.  They formed a new nation which we now know as the United States of America.

I am so incredibly blessed to have connections in both the US and Canada.  To me, each country has its own unique and undeniably commendable features; I love both countries!

I don’t think there are too many people who can even fathom the 4th of July without fireworks! Ah, fireworks and lots of them! To celebrate this fine…

I was just about to write about two Endangered Birds this morning,  when this came in my email.

The Birds can wait until tomorrow,  this is much more important to me and millions of others around the world.

First let me say, that I have felt this way since the 60’s, when I lived in L.A., long before it was fashionable to do so.

It was the time of flower children, free love, inspirational speeches and thinking, yes some of it was quite radical as well, and also sadly, way too many really bad drugs.

It was more importantly, a time of a different kind of attitude toward others.

Did the Viet Nam War/Conflict have anything to do with this, probably.

We were all so very young and so very scared.

We had a common bond,  a mantra,  ” trust no one over 30.”

We were…
