Poetic Dan

I don't know where I'm going, but I like it!



I sat down with my stings
To play a tune
Nothing new

 

It'll do

 

Suddenly you
Are chirping
too

 

Little tune

 

Just for me

 

I looped It round
A few more
Times
&
So did
you

 

A Perfect
Tweak

 

Both synchronising
In harmony

 

Are little
Melody

 

On
Repeat

 

Then off you flew
How I wish
I was you

 

Free to
Move

I
Thank you

 

~~~~Break~~~~


For showing me
Tweeting
To me

All the little things
I've ever known
that I can be

 

Let go of fear
embrace the life

hear that bird inside you
And let the spirit fly

Are you listening

 

Let go of hate
Just rise above

Knowing in your spirit
Wings can't be crushed

Don't be afraid
It's not to late
Change only stops
If you hesitate

 


~~~~~Break~~~~~~

 


So go free
Your self

Listening

 

To natures
Call

Reset it

All

 

Living in the
Moments

Where you

Belong

Soul to
Soul

Knowing all
Will come


Nothings
Ever gone

Forever more

Living on
In each birds
Song

Within every
Strum

Blessings
Will come

Just play
Along
&
Find your
Song

    Good write Dan. Yep, I know. A cat dashed off, once I started to sing. it probably thought I was trying to pick a fight - meoowwooo! ya hear me? lol.

    • Poetic Dan

      Lol loud and clear
      Thank you kindly
      My dear friend

      Very enjoyable.
      In real life I had an encounter with a humming bird, just an arms length away, which is imprinted on my mind forever.

      • Poetic Dan

        Yes I must say I can't stop thinking about it and I did have a buzz all day yesterday. I think it's still with me too, happy days natures way!

        Always appreciated
        Thank you

      • orchidee

        Erm, if ya dunno where ya are going, how will ya know when ya get there?! heehee. I know what you mean though. Take the No.7 bus. That may get ya there.

        • Poetic Dan

          Night bus is it?

          • orchidee

            Could be! Some wag was having me on. I tried to trick him. I said 'Does the No.11 bus go to Mars?' He replied 'No, you want the No.15 bus for there' Doh!

            Exceptionally well strummed he hummed and ah'ed... then wrote a poem bout a little bird.... wot a little cracker sir... not only a rather nice poem to kick the day off, but a very pleasant, simple tune that kind of goes round in my head in a really nice way..... Neville

            • Poetic Dan

              You do spoil me with your words and I definitely need more practise but I definitely appreciate the encouragement as much as you may think.
              Even more so knowing my jingle jangle is floating round you head.

              Much peace and respect

              • Neville

                my words are meant and true.. peace & all good things back at ya..

              • Joker44

                I kinda got an idea, like people gathering to this song...or a camp night together.

                • Poetic Dan

                  Now that is a wonderful compliment
                  I could never thank you enough
                  I'll be sure to not give up

                • Fay Slimm

                  What an artistic thing to achieve - playing along with a bird - great idea Dan. Love the positive vibes in your words.

                  • Poetic Dan

                    Well I wish it was my idea but nature came up with it. Perfect timed with just a single chirp was all it had to do!

                    Thank you so much
                    Always appreciated

                    • Fay Slimm

                      My absolute pleasure dear poet-friend.

                    • Michael Edwards

                      This so original and sits so well with Fay's posting today - a really inspired write.

                      • Poetic Dan

                        That had made my day thank you Good sir! And I'll head over that way now ;)
                        Have a wonderful day

                        • Michael Edwards

                          It's the bird theme - must be the day for it.

                          Great piece of writing today m8. All about being in harmony with ones surroundings. And the simple pleasure one gets from making a nice noise on a musical instrument.
                          If i got one of my saxophone out and started honking away all the wildlife for miles would run for the hills though. With one exception.
                          It used to amaze me that when i was hammer drilling in a wall, any nearby spiders would approach the drill... i think the vibrations must be similar to the buzz of a fly caught in a web.. or maybe spiders are just frustrated building workers reincarnated with more legs?

                          • Poetic Dan

                            Ha ha brilliant buddy! I guess some bring nature and others people, I do love the saxs.

                            Thank you for a massive laugh out loud! 
                            Well needed my friend. 
                            Happy drilling

                            loved this today Dan. I also play guitar and find it very soothing. Loved hearing your tune today and your piece was so reflective on something I could relate to. So I had to save. Thanks for sharing and keep playing those tunes

                            • Poetic Dan

                              Thank you so much, I wouldn't say I can play but I know I'm better but just hit a wall and stopped playing. Felt good to pick it up again a few months back and I think the bird was my reward ;)

                              My trouble is my skin is to soft, it hurts to much after 10 minutes or so lol
                              Love to hear your work, if it's out there?


                              • LittleGift

                                Keep playing and that skin will harden my friend. Good you picked it up again. I left my guitar for some time after my dad passed as he was who got me into to. We would play together. But I picked it up again few years back and haven’t looked back. Great therapy. Maybe I will post me playing. I write a lot of songs, just like I do poems. Though I don’t profess to be able to sing lol

                                Still it’s nice. And how lovely the robin couldn’t resist joining in. Gotta be a compliment if nature is feeling your song Dan :)
