A one month show and one of my favorite challenges.
I chose four poems, two songs, and a play for my inspiration. :)
“The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.”
From I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
“Can you see it coming now?
I think I’m breaking down again”
From Breaking Down by Florence and the Machine
Fast Anchor’d, Eternal, O love! O woman I love!
O bride! O wife! more resistless than I can tell, the thought of you!
Then separate, as disembodied, or another born,
Ethereal, the last athletic reality, my consolation;
I ascend—I float in the regions of your love, O man,
O sharer of my roving life.
Fast Anchor’d, Eternal, O Love! by Walt Whitman
“When we try to pick out anything by itself we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”
By John Muir
“If you are not too long, I will wait for you all my life.”
From The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde
“ “Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops-at all”
From “Hope” is the Thing With Feathers by Emily Dickinson
“Your eyes are soft with sorrow
Hey, that’s no way to say goodbye”
From Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye by Leonard Cohen
