Swaying in the wind root and branch.
Time dances endlessly along
Punctuated by song bird’s song
All is written noughts left to chance.
The Forrest sees all of life’s dance.
Nature likes to watch the eons chase.
Across her planet at such pace.
She knows her cycle will repeat
Winter’s bitter cold, Summer’s heat.
Nature is happy by God’s grace

Wordless Wednesday. Two seasons in one day.

Song Lyric Sunday: Concise.

Oh! My goodness Jim you have thrown the cat among the pigeons today. There are so many choices …. The prompt this week is songs that have single word titles! Well there are so many great ones to choose from that I am in a tizzie!

So I decided to go for my favourite artist Imogen Heap.

My first choice was Thriller, yes the Michael Jackson song. I love this version by Immie, it’s so different to the Michael Jackson version.

Thriller” is a song recorded by American recording artist Michael Jackson, composed by Rod Temperton, and produced by Quincy Jones. It is the seventh and final single from his sixth studio album of the same name. It was released on November 12, 1983 in most countries and January 23, 1984 in the United States by Epic Records. The song has appeared on multiple greatest hits compilation albums from Jackson, including HIStory (1995), Number Ones (2003), The Essential Michael Jackson (2005), and Michael Jackson’s This Is It (2009), and it was remixed to the Immortal album in 2011.

“Thriller” has been covered by multiple recording artists since its release in 1984, including Henry Mancini (with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), Ian BrownTen Masked Men, and Imogen Heap. Information from here.

It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You’re paralyzed’

Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one’s gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it’s thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there’s nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you’ll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination, girl!
But all the while you hear the creature creeping up behind
You’re out of time ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain’t no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight Night creatures calling, the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There’s no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
(They’re open wide)
This is the end of your life They’re out to get you, there’s demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change that number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night I’ll save you from the terror on the screen
I’ll make you see That this is thriller, thriller night
‘Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a
Killer, diller, chiller, thriller here tonight ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
Girl, I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller, ow!Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’alls neighborhood I’m gonna thrill ya tonight, ooh baby
I’m gonna thrill ya tonight, oh darlin’
Thriller night, baby, ooh!The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller Source: Musixmatch

I Megaphone is the debut studio album by British singer-songwriter Imogen Heap. It was released on 16 June 1998 by Almo Sounds, and later re-released in Japan by Aozora Records on 23 January 2002. The album was primarily written by Heap, starting when she was 15 years old, with co-writing from Guy Sigsworth and Fil Eisler. It was first produced and recorded solely by Heap and Dave Stewart, and it was subsequently re-recorded alongside producers David Kahne and Guy Sigsworth. It is an alternative rock record with largely confessional lyricism, addressing themes ranging from adolescent drug use and revenge to perseverance and religion. The album’s title is an anagram of “Imogen Heap”

Shine was track two on Imegaphone the album was not a huge success but I always loved it 💜💜.

Rain drain my play away
Sun gun me down and burn me
Nature hates me today
My head distorts reality

Madness just moved into my shadow

Shine, I will not cry and I will not die not
Shine, I will be there for me
Shine, I will not cry and I will be mine
I’ll shine, shine Who waltzed me into this
Am I now stuck here forever
Luck just gave me a kiss
Then lashed me down with a leather strap

Trying to learn to swim without any water
Trying just to begin just when
You’re in for the slaughter, yeah

Shine, I will not cry and I will not die no
Shine, I will be there for me
Shine, I’ll be just fine if I stay all mine
I’ll shine, shine,Shine, I will not cry and I will not die no
Shine, I will be there for me
Shine, I’ll be just fine if I stay all mine
I’ll shine, Shines
You… Musixmatch

The two above songs were early songs of my heroine Immie, and I played them a lot when I was in hospital after breaking my back for the second time, she got me through operations, pain , fear and then afterwards while learning to walk again.

Below is Fountain a video collaboration between Immie and iamamiwhoami . KONSERT is ionnalee’s third online concert installation. The concert was streamed at YouTube on September 2, 2020 for free and featured TR/ST, Imogen Heap, Zola Jesus, and Vander Von Odd.

I watched the concert while I was waiting for my gall bladder op. Lol not all my Immie memories are medical, honest!

What lies beyond the fringe of the woods?
Dust to dust, so we leave for good
When all has gone to blazes I start to run
Until I find places where nobody’s gone

No more weight on your conscience
With ease, I go back to the start

Surge like a fountain
Riptide
And swallow me
Flourish like a fountain
Inside
Gather force from the sea
Now you’re new and shiny
Hold tight
Let it wash me clean

Crawling through deafening cold
Turning head, there’s no sight of home
Though my body’s aching, we have to push on
For every start, no line is drawn

Surge like a fountain
Riptide
And swallow me
Flourish like a fountain
Inside
Gather force from the sea
Now you’re new and shiny
Hold tight
Let it wash me clean

From watching eyes I blindly rove
To guard my stories and find my god

What lies beyond the fringe of the woods?
Dust to dust, so we leave for good.

HAVE A SUNDAY EVERYONE!

The 2 CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so.

Like a rumble in the jungle
A whirring, bumbling joyful noise.
Fleas busy showing off their poise.
A heaving seaving big bundle.
Singing up a joyful roundel.
Ruby’s distracted by her nose.
She hears the rumble as it grows.
Her nose is busy a twitching
Those fleas are busy a scritchin.
I hear a sneeze and out they blows.

#WRITEPHOTO – NEWBORNS

KL Caley at Novel Ideas has offered to take on Sue Vincent’s #writephoto weekly challenge now Sue has moved on to a higher plain.

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a group of mother sheep about to give birth, with one newly arrived lamb visible.

The New Arrivals – Image by KL Caley.

It had been such a long night, cold as well. Liam was exhausted, not one of the Ewes had produced a single lamb….not one had gone into labour!

“Hey sleepy head”, it was Gena, “how’s it going. Looks like you’ve had a productive night.” Liam yawned and stretched as he accepted a hot mug of coffee and a foil wrapped bacon sandwich.

“It’s been a slow night he said, not a single sign of any of the Ewes having a single lamb! ” Gena looked at him oddly… “Looks like your wrong there. What’s that,” she said motioning to the far side of the pen. “What’s that, scotch mist?”

Liam could not believe his eyes, or ears. There was Millie with baby Mollie, and the others were looking and sounding as if things were on the move.

Nature knows what’s best.

Spring, renewal and new life.

It’s all a circle

Bruised face, two bruised wrists, one in a bandage, two bruised knees and a broken pair of glasses! …!

One-Liner Wednesday : Art for Arts Sake.

Part of LindaGHill’s One-Liner Wednesday.

“That’s a lovely drawing Max can we keep it?” “Yes it’s me stroking Ruby. ….”

When it was time to leave, “I think I will take it home, with me.” Luckily we had snapped a photo of it.

Lovely to have a socially distanced, if not cold Easter visit from the Grandchildren. 🤗

Ben left all of his for Ruby.
