A Prompt for all

This song compels me into verdant places imaginatively again and again…any and all who would like or be willing – it would intrigue me to see what you each might blog/create or what is evoked for any and all of you when you engage in this beautiful piece…

  1. The picture and title are enough to get me started, and the music is so fitting.
    I don’t usually do with this very well, or at all, but this prompted me to write something.
    I might post it soon.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Spiralling.
    But up or down?
    The heart moves in and out,
    Its own rhythm.
    Has no memory, no sorrow, no joy
    ( The wild geese cry, flying away
    Away to the horizon of light.)
    The heart has no words,
    No tears.
    (what I cannot grasp – the resonant fullness
    Of a dying chord).
    The heart has no words –
    The reason music is.

  3. This is gorgeous – hope you don’t mind me having a play!

    Of darkened halls in a place long abandoned
    On marshland where lanterns light a path
    On ground no feet have trampled
    From windows through which nothing travels
    But light and leaves and wind
    In silence untouched by human folly
    In echoes that have forgotten us
    A place that clings to the Earth
    As it rolls through another day
    And leaves us further
    And further behind

  4. Reblogged this on circles under streetlights and commented:
    I’ve had a little play with this musical writing prompt – why not do the same?

    Of darkened halls in a place long abandoned
    On marshland where lanterns light a path
    On ground no feet have trampled
    From windows through which nothing travels
    But light and leaves and wind
    In silence untouched by human folly
    In echoes that have forgotten us
    A place that clings to the Earth
    As it rolls through another day
    And leaves us further
    And further behind

  7. Such a beautiful and evocative piece of music. Thanks so much for posting. Words poured out from me while listening:
    A leaf pulled along
    Running below the surface of the river
    Its bright gold flash
    Catching the eye of Time.
    Rising to the surface
    Tumbling
    Rolling
    Gliding through the standing stones
    Markers on the way
    that stay
    while I go on.
    Eddies pull me aside
    Swirling
    Whirling
    Lost in endless turning tones
    Under, over but not away
    Squandering the breaking day
    I stay.
    Breath moves me
    Currents beneath nudge.
    Stream pulls the leaf
    Free, torn away
    Gold to grey
    Running below the surface of the river
    Disappearing in glorious silver light
    Catching the eye of Time.
