We walked on sea shores with our mates Though wide oceana separate Now we’re abandoned on the shores By the loves we’ll see no more We still stand on shifting sands Expecting , needing, helping hands But most people walk on by And we’re too afraid to cry
Lost in places we once knew But recognised by very few Our eyes look out but do not see Filled by tears we can’t set free
Shall we stay here evermore Hoping lovers we adored Are on their way back to their home As slowly, sadly, we still roam?
The sturdy walls that bear the sky Have been shattered from on high And feeling smaller than the snails We hear the long lost sea winds wail
Oh, weep for him and me, wide seas Embrace our souls in your salt breeze See the crushed and broken shells Hear the tolling of the bells
I thought I’d write another villanelle I like repeated lines as in a song The music seems to permeate my cells Inside my entire being music dwells Would I write another villanelle? A triolet is shorter, love is long Musing, I decided villanelle. I like repeated lines but am I wrong?

I have got no appetite.I need someone new The food is very boring, it’s made with UHU You put it in the microwave and send a text or two Blimey,I forgot it was a homemade real beef stew
Well, the moon is shining and Paul Robeson gleams in glee I want the stars to play with me, they pray for very few
Why do some people find it easy to stick to their own point of view whereas others are like chameleons who change to fit in with whoever they are with?I don’t know the full answer.It may depend on their background and in some countries women have to be subservient to men.Some people are just being diplomatic and some are wishing to avoid an argument to find our unique viewpoint and not go along with the crowd.i am not advocating breaking the law by doing/saying offensive things for pleasure.I believe sometimes I have been lazy and not given thought to a topic and so I agree with another person whom I respect but really that is wrong.Since each of us is unique I believe we need to express our point of view the best things about artists is that they look or hear at the world differently and help us to see the validity of different ways of seeing or listening
.But when a new artist or composer appears people often believe they are mad at first.This is what happened to Igor Stravinsky at the first performance of some of his music.Yet compared to composers who followed he was quite similar to those preceded him.Mahler wrote this music a year before the Stravinsky was composed and it is very different
