MUSIC THEME: DEATH AND REBIRTH

Today’s  music  theme  was picked  by  Maddie and she  has  chosen Death  and Rebirth.

Lets  start  with Shakespeare’s Sister  : The  video  shows  the  fight  between  life  and death….. who  will win!

 

_________________________________________________

The Morrígan (“phantom queen”) or Mórrígan (“great queen”), also written as Morrígu or in the plural as Morrígna, and spelled Morríghan or Mór-ríoghain in Modern Irish, is a figure from Irish mythology who appears to have been considered a goddess, although she is not explicitly referred to as such in the texts.

The primary themes associated with the Morrígan are battle, strife, and sovereignty. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors, and in the Ulster Cycle she also takes the forms of an eel, a wolf and a cow. She is generally considered a war deity comparable with the Germanic Valkyries, although her association with a cow may also suggest a role connected with wealth and the land.

She is often depicted as a trio of individuals, all sisters.[1][2][3] Although membership of the triad varies, the most common combinations are Badb, Macha and Nemain,[4] or Badb, Macha and Anand; Anand is also given as an alternate name for Morrigu.[5] Other accounts name Fea, and others.[4]   you can read  more  here 

I have  written  two  poems  about  The  Irish  Goddess  of  Death  and Rebirth  Morrigan

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

MORRIGAN

Oh! the beauty of Morrigan  the phantom Queen.

Goddess of War and Sex  the most enchanting woman you have seen.

Secretly  she flies with ravens and crows

She is  happier in their company than that of any man she knows.

Riding her white steed across the sky at night

She will find a hero and bind him to her tight.

By the joys of sex she will empower him and be he knave or king

With the memory of her love he will surge into battle and he will win.

Through the seasons the crows carry her name she has shapes times three .

Which one will she chose to show which one will she be.

A crone at the village fair

Making jewellery for the young maids to  wear in their hair.

A comely maid in spring may make a young king’s heart sing.

His soul to her is lost she will sate his lust.

Then  empower him and he in battle will win.

The Tripple Goddess

Then will come the day when she will ensure he has to pay.

A woman in full bloom all curves and charms

Will welcome the knight into her arms

And teach him things he could never have known.

He will awake to find her flown

Leaving feathers on the pillow. Outside his window he will hear the harsh crow song.

All men who have been visited by her will triumph at their cause ,

Then at their death bed she will return and the mystery’s of life she will unravel then his life she will pause.
The old the young the one carrying new birth .And so the three in one travel this earth

Spreading their magic along their way

Crows and ravens by night and a woman by day.

Morrigan phantom Queen

Goddess of War and Sex  the most enchanting woman you have seen.

Secretly  she flies with ravens and crows

She is  happier in their company than that of any man she knows.

Morrigan Nightmare of the rebirth  of  the dead.

Morrigan

Dark and stormy full of dread

On the grey waters  black of heart and dress of red.

Sullen feeling filled her soul

As the wind whipped up her dress and let fly her hair black as coal.

In the sky  over head weaved her Raven broad of wing and sharp of eye

Black and shiny against a grey unholy sky.

Waters broke about her feet,

Icy cold but to her sweet.

She is the rebirth of the dead

She is the one on which all darkness is fed.

Slowly as the thunder clashed

She turned to face me and an evil light in her eyes flashed.

Reaching out her hand to me

She gently cooed that she had come to set me free.

Relinquish all of you that is good give in to me

Relax, release I am here to set you free.

No I screamed I will not bow to you, I am not such easy prey

Here I stand and here I shall stay

Do what ever you have come to do.

Angry now she motioned to her raven down,

He swooped at speed. So fast was he and noisy too.

His warning screech I did not heed

In he came with talons long and beak razor sharp on my face to feed.

my eyes so bright

That was how I lost my sight,

It was wrench from me that dark grey night .

Still I was steadfast I stood my ground

Though her raven ripped at me and threw my flesh all around.

I would not give into the dead

I uttered every prayer I had ever said.

Finally in the cold light of dawn

I found myself on the shore lost and forlorn.

Pained and I could see no more.

Dark and stormy full of dread

On the grey waters  black of heart and dress of red.

Sullen feeling filled her soul

As the wind whipped up her dress and let fly her hair black as coal.

Music Theme : Time

Lisa chose the music theme TIME for this week, which she posted in a TIMELY manner on her blog, giving us all plenty of TIME to prepare. Yet timely  or not I am late!

When  we are young we think  we will life  forever!  we think  we are  invincible.We have a lot  to learn.


Time is on my side The Rolling Stones

We  can  find ourselves  caught up  in a time warp!


time warp

Metronome Tick Tock

Sitting on the Piano top is the metronome

Guiding you unable to stop music in your home

Tick! Tock! Tick !Tock! you must never cease

Making music  as the notes bring you release

So in syncopating trance you are hypnotized

Tick! Tock ! your music is  highly prized.

 

Music is a guiding light and it leads you

Up  on to a new height, timing good and true

Bish bash! Bish bash hit those keys keeping music coming

you always have a crowd to please, high  low keep them humming

Great rhythm belting out hear that appreciative shout so

Bish bash! Hit those keys watch the metronome and follow.

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

Time  after time  we make  the same mistakes, we do  the same things over

Time after Time.

time after time  Cyndi  Lauper

Then  the special  days, hatching , matchings  and despatching’s! Special times

Party  times, family times happy times!!

Chawki Time of our Lives

Then suddenly you realize  you are  not immortal, you are not invincible !

Jim Croce    Time in a bottle

Time runs out……….

Race of life ,passing of time.

Death lives time dies

Clock face out of pace , time flies its a race.

Tick tock out of space  turn and run fall from grace.

Time flies, crooks and spies . Dead bodies fester maggots and blue flies.

Life comes life goes death travels on, no one knows where he goes.

Tick tock ,plip plop dripping tap racing clock. Watch your toes on the starting block.

Peddle peddle wheels go round changing gears drowns the sound

Of horses hoofs on the ground.

Big eyes tell lies, open mouths catch flies. Death lives time flies!

Oh if  only  you could  turn back time…………..

Clocks ColdPlay

The Scientist ColdPlay

And  now  my  time has run out  because time is a thief!

Time theif

Time is now, there is neither past nor future.

We stand here in the moment. We can’t go back and rewrite what has gone before.

There is no way that we can influence what is to come. “What” I hear you say. “We can plan, we can organize.”

photo credit google image

You are fooling yourselves you may be able to influence some things but not the important.

Take your chance now. “Do not put off to tomorrow that which can be done today.”

A truer statement has not been made. Don’t let the future rob you of the now.

Do not let the past wrap you up in remorse, regret or even yearning.

It is gone and never will return, if you are lucky it may have taught you something.

The future is a thief, beware it does not steal your chance to do things. It robs by slight and stealth. Tomorrow I will meet you, tomorrow I will come, I won’t forget to ring you but yet tomorrow never comes.

I wish I had, if only, if only once again it’s gone and past and all that lasts is eternal pain.

The lessens are there for learning and once we really look the lines are clear the pages open so take a close, close look my dear.

Music theme : Spite…

Johnny had chose SPITE for the Music Theme for this week. woow  that is a mean and  a hard  theme to tackle  and of course I am very  late I do hope  not  too late  to join in!

Spite is a many  headed  monster it can manifest  itself in many places in fact in every part of our lives. There is physical spite  and mental spite, each as cruel as  the other. Spite can hit at any age it is usually  born of jealousy or hate  usually  when it comes down to it  jealousy  and a feeling of  being done down or out  done  of  something, that  will fit  the bill.

There is spite  between children, pinching, poking and much worse, bullying, lying  and so on. It  get  worse  when you grow up  there can be spite at  work, spite  at home . People  will knowingly  hold  you back, make  your life difficult  lie  about  you . Spite in couples  can be even worse it can destroy  everyone in the relationship  even if  there are children  things  can be even worse!

 

SPITE

Nasty, vicious , hurtful  spitting  fire

Enjoying every drop of pain your actions inspire.

Planing  nasty things behind my back

Enjoying  the horror in me  when you attack

 

I can play  that game too

There are lots of things I can do to you !

I can call you names  and brake your possessions

I lay you bare and divulge all your obsessions.

 

But  you always have the upper hand

You can hurt me with a look or word , you need nothing grand.

I guess I am just a slave to you

We are  both slaves to the spite we do.

Music Themes : Purpose!

Maddie chose the music theme PURPOSE for this week  and Eva is back!  and I am late!

Now  what  purpose  shall we go for first!  Well Imogen wants  to escape  from the pressures of life  and go back to childhood! we all often get that  nasty feeling  that  we  do not  belong  and that we need to escape!

Then one  morning you wake up  and you realize  your  whole life  has  to change  and  the relationship  you are in just has to end! You need to find  and put  purpose into your  life!

Another life changing purpose is the need to take life  by the hand  and make it a better place  for everyone.

The main purpose in life is progress, I add this  video  because I just just love  the excitement  and life  it exudes! Love  them or  hate  them Take That  are just a life  force  they have so much talent  and live they are as good as  their best  recording!

And  finally  the purpose  of life……….. is  there anything more important?

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes

There’s a hole in my soul like a cavity
Seems the world is out to gather just by gravity
The wheel keeps turning the sky’s rearranging
Look my son the weather is changing

I’d like to feel that you could be free
Look up at the blue skies beneath a new tree
Sometime again
You’ll turn green and the sea turns red
My son I said the power of reflections over my head
The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes

We sang about the sun and danced among the trees
And we listened to the whisper of the city on the breeze
Will you cry in the most in a lead-free zone
Down within the shadows where the factories drone
On the surface of the wheel they build another town
And so the green come tumbling down
Yes close your eyes and hold me tight
And I’ll show you sunset sometime again

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes
As a child solemn pray my hope hides in disguise
While satellites and cameras watch from the skies
An acid drop of rain recycled from the sea
It washed away my shadow burnt a hole in me
And all the king’s men cannot put it back again
But the ghetto sun will nurture life
And mend my soul sometime again

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes   Massive Attack

MUSICAL THEME : RENDEZOUS

Well I thought I just  might  gatecrash  the Musical Theme  this week which  was chosen  by Bear  . The title of which today is RENDEZOUS.

A rendezous,

1. A meeting at a prearranged time and place. See Synonyms at engagement.
2. A prearranged meeting place, especially an assembly point for troops or ships.
3. A popular gathering place: The café is a favorite rendezvous for artists.
4. Aerospace The process of bringing two spacecraft together.
tr. & intr.v. ren·dez·voused (-vd), ren·dez·vous·ing (-vng), ren·dez·vous (-vz)

To bring or come together at a rendezvous.
                       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. an agreement to meet at a certain time and place.
2. the meeting itself.
3. a place designated for a meeting or assembling, as of troops.
4. a meeting of two or more spacecraft in outer space.
5. a popular gathering place.
6. to assemble at an agreed time and place.

Lindisfarne    Meet me on the corner : A perfect example of a rendezous . “Meet me on the corner when the sun is going down and I’ll be there I promise I’ll be there. ” Time  and place  and expectations.

The Failed rendezous , the broken date. There on time and  waiting  excitedly  …. sadly  the boy  is waiting in vane. For whatever reason the girl does not turn up. Has something happened  to her, has  she met  someone else, has she been forbidden  to go by  an angry parent. Is  she a married  woman or a girl with a boyfriend  who has stopped her from keeping  her rendezous, we will never know.

Sandy Shaw    Girl Don’t  Come

The Rendezous,  the place to meet.  “ We all have friends  who  have friends  by  the river, who too have friends who  have friends of their own. All seated  round  having Port  after  dinner. Port that was  bought  by  the friends  they have known.”  The river being the place to be, the rendezous  to meet friends  and eat together.

Arrival       Friends

The Chance meeting that leads to a rendezous.

“Rendezvous where to my place say 2 & we can do anything you wanna do. Hey, tonight is your night yeah, When you close your eyes, take a minute, take a moment realise. Do you see me when you fantiasise.Tonight’ll be your night”

Craig David….. Rendezous

The place  for a meeting  by seaside  this time! The  film  in the video  is just  so lovely!

Queen  Seaside Rendezous

 

Rendezous 

I was there where were you

My watch had  not stopped I was there at two!

The Restaurant  was buzzing, so many people saw me all alone

Looking  stupid, like a spare part , so embarrassed I wanted  to turn to stone!

 

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

Rendezous 

You bring  the wine

I shall name the place and time

We shall meet  and our hands entwine

It will be the rendezous of all time!

Music Theme : Transitions!

Maddie chose the theme TRANSITIONS

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

At Bear’s suggestion I have put together  a Transitions music theme  using  only  songs  from my favourite singer  song writer  Imogen Heap

I do hope  you enjoy !  here  with love  from me .

Transitions

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

Transitions Imogen Heap  displays  her  wonderful  new inventions  , her  magical  gloves  it a startling  view  of the future!

A song  that  should  be written  that  isn’t  yet…. that is transitions  isn’t  it!

Earth, this  song is about  Nature  telling  earth  that  she can  see  it’s  transitions  and mistakes!

Changing  from a  human  to a plant… that is  big!

Transition from a beautiful  home  to a derelict house  and  back again?

The  downward  spiral  of  love  going  bad .. the final row

Journey  from scared  bullied  child  to confident  woman!
