Travel Challenge Reveal: Day 2.

© willowdot21

Another holiday that I have not blogged about. A beautiful day in France, a quiet village, between rain storms. We stopped for a picnic and fell in love with this house or its reflection.

Just Jot It January: Day 2 Boisterous.

Just jot it January : Day 2 : January 2nd Boisterous~Dan Antion  thank you Dan for the prompt and Linda for the #jusjojan. 

James was such a boisterous child

His shenanigans drove his parents wild.

Running here shouting there

Caused his parents to loose their hair.
James was not popular at a party

His gay abandon was too hearty

Mum and Dad hoped it was true

That he would calm down as he grew.
James was so full of fun and life

His biking and tree climbing caused strife

He was a frequent flier in A and E

But he was loved, that was plain to see.
 James gave his parents quite a fright

When he suddenly changed over night.

Of a sudden he became quiet and calm 

Bringing a Sweetheart home on his arm…………

Jimmie jnr was another boisterous child

His shenanigans drove his parents wild. !!

Day two. I choose to share the song Still from the film Dogma, written and sung by Alanis Morissette.

The film is about a narrowly avoided Apocalypse. Alanis plays the part of God and Alan Rickman played the Angel Gabriel. I shall tell you no more but I can highly recommend the film. 

The words are on the video and once you have heard and read them you will see, I hope , why I think this song is of worth and means a lot to me. Especially with todays news in the middle East in fact all over the world everyday.

Today  is  Day 2 of Musicalmarch, so I want to share a  song I  have loved  for  a long time , original  and  a cover  version.

I have  loved  Kate Bush  for ever  and have always felt  a connection  with her  lyrics  and music. She writes such beautiful lyrics.

Running up  the  Hill , resonates  with  my  life  the  awful feeling of  running  through  quick  sand  just  to  get  through  the day. She  explains it perfectly the hopelessness we all feel at  different  points in our life.

Apparently  I  have always misinterpreted the song, this  is  what Kate  Bush  said  about  the  it.

I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can’t understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other’s roles, if we could actually be in each other’s place for a while, I think we’d both be very surprised! [Laughs] And I think it would lead to a greater understanding. And really the only way I could think it could be done was either… you know, I thought a deal with the devil, you know. And I thought, ‘well, no, why not a deal with God!’ You know, because in a way it’s so much more powerful the whole idea of asking God to make a deal with you. You see, for me it is still called “Deal With God”, that was its title. But we were told that if we kept this title that it would not be played in any of the religious countries, Italy wouldn’t play it, France wouldn’t play it, and Australia wouldn’t play it! Ireland wouldn’t play it, and that generally we might get it blacked purely because it had God in the title.

Personally I  still think it  describes life’s struggles. What  do  you think?

Below  is  the  very  best of  the  many  covers of  this  beautiful  song, it is by Placebo. The  Video is  really  special!It makes  me  think   everybody struggles  with life .

Eden’s Fall

DAY 2    

Today’s prompt a poem about a lie.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He offered her the fruit all beautiful and red

“Look at the beauty here it will make you wise”, he said.

“It is from the tree of wisdom”, he smiled, ” beautiful and new”

She hesitated slightly for to take fruit from that tree was not allowed, and this she knew.

Hissing sweetly  and gently nudging her arm

The handsome snake beguiled her, she was caught up in his charm.

“No one will ever notice and I shall never tell

Take it quickly while no one is looking you can share with man as well.”

 

“Are you sure we can eat this” the first man asked of her

“Of course we can” she lied the snake’s charm made her no longer care.

All she knew was that she wanted to taste the fruit because it was was forbidden.

The snake had said the taste was beyond compare and after a little coaxing the man did as he was bidden.

Just one bite each they took and at once they knew

This was no fantastical fruit.  What the snake  had said was untrue.

 

The sky went dark and lightening flashed both man and woman began to shiver

Fear hit them, a feeling they had never known.The snake wagged his tale as happily, off he began to sliver.

“Who has eaten of my tree” a loud and angry voice asked

“I told you, you could have anything  but to not touch this tree, you had been tasked.”

Neither man nor woman wanted the blame so each quickly  blamed the other

They suddenly felt their nakedness and so both ran for cover.

 

What happened next is well known it is the oldest tale of all

Snake, man or woman, who lied first? I think it was the snake who cause Eden’s fall.
