THE ECHOES OF DISTANT VOICES

Now the ground is neither a sticky mud bath nor a slippery ice rink accident waiting to happen I went up to the forest on Sunday. Amazing how many trees had fallen down over winter. It’s peaceful up there.


WISHFUL THINKING


The chatter of the ghosts
A haunting silhouette
The echoes of distant voices
An orchestral violin quartet


From this cave of constant twilight
I see a red sunset
The hurricane is over
It’s nearly time to reset
The rules and regulations
The needles and vaccine
The masks, the bubbles, the distancing
The whole monotonous routine


Outside, upgraded video
Inside, a shadow’s monochrome
When yesterday becomes tomorrow
The door opens and we roam



I’m featuring the work of another artist this week. Fifi Rong is her name. As her write-up explains, ‘Fifi is a London-based vocalist, songwriter and electronic music producer. A ground-breaking artist, she is the first to succeed in organically integrating Chinese influences into western popular music, gliding effortlessly across an eclectic range of contemporary genres. Her trademark hybrid sound is a seamless blend of Pop, Electronica, Alternative R&B, Avant-garde and UK Bass music.’ I hope you enjoy her new video and song;


If you want to download this song of Fifi’s or any of her previous work then here’s the link to Bandcamp. Just click on ‘Another Me’;


18 months ago, Fifi kindly featured on my then new song, ‘Devil’s Kiss’. In case you’ve not heard it previously, here it is;

    1. Thanks. I’m lucky in that the woods are just up the road and hardly anyone goes up there this time of the year. I’d go there today only it’s raining – again. Thanks again ~ George

  1. I walk daily in the woods out my back door, enjoying the changes in it as I stroll. Thank you for sharing Gigi’s music video Absolutely beautiful! Take care. ~Elle

    I like the entire poem. All the paragraphs are epic.
    You write stuff that is in keeping with the times. Trending stories. It’s like keeping abreast of world affairs Zoolon style. Classy and elegant and aesthetically inspiring..

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Yasmin. I think I might be writing too much about current corona related issues. Creativity has gone into hiding this last year. The music industry is as good as dead and that doesn’t help. Kind words do help though. Thank you again ~ George

      1. You are welcome, George. My mind is just not cooperating anymore .. the creative process has been lost in all this crap that is happening. ..

        The music Industry can never be dead , music is food for the soul, something we all need. It’s a matter of time before everything gets back to normal.

      2. This creativity thing is always – mostly – about seeing something for real then imagining it as surreal. That’s when music and lyrics combine. ‘Back to normal’ sounds good to me so long as it’s soon ~ George

  3. The words to accompany your forest walk are magic. They transport. I know when I go to the forest with Biasini there are voices there from time long past. One section of the forest has original, never logged, massive trees. They speak. I liked Fifi’s voice too.
