SEAGULLS, CROWS & PIGEONS

‘Tuesday, 11AM: No Sign of Life’ Unless you’re composing to a specific theme, deciding on a title for an instrumental piece isn’t always easy. The title has to reflect the music. I suppose it’s a bit like naming a kid after its been born. When there’s lyrics there is always a way to find a

MUSHROOMS, GRAVESTONES, SPIDERS & BEES

‘Mushroom Quartet’ I don’t make a habit of hanging out in graveyards. The only reason I found myself in one on Saturday morning was because it was pouring with rain and the path through the graves of St Eanswythe Church was a shortcut from where my car was parked and the place I was heading

THE MOST POPULAR DOG IN TOWN

‘Alfie’s Back in Town’ Here’s Alfie the most popular dog – maybe the most popular living thing – in town. He’s just back on the scene after a short break recovering from an op to sort his leg out. Now he’s good to go all the old ladies are feeding him the treats they keep

DOORWAY TO THE ROOM OF CLOUDS

‘Doorway to The Room of Clouds’ ‘One minute I held the key Next the walls were closed on me I discovered that my castle stands Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand’ Coldplay I thought I’d try something random again, just writing the first thing/things that came into my head. I’ve not done it

OVER THE TOP

^My pal Adam celebrating his victory^ I put a pic of me just about to lose a game of pool on the blog a couple of posts back (see below for a repeat performance). What I’d forgotten at the time was that I had with me at the point of my defeat, my Go-Pro. That’s

‘Money is the reason we exist Everybody knows it, it’s a fact – kiss, kiss’ Lana Del Rey from her song, ‘National Anthem’  OXYGEN IN A CUP The Amazons on fire again The ice caps melt away Sea levels gone and lost the plot Plastic bottles don’t decay Exhaust fumes and factory waste Industry is

‘NO FEEDING THE BIRDS’

‘Unfeasibly Giant Hands’ I’ve been working on a couple of big – at least to me they’re big – music projects these last couple of months and now, near the end, I find I’m putting so much into it trying to get it finally finished that I can’t write the words I want anymore. I’ve

KINDA

‘Defeat Looms’ An adapted story. I say adapted only because I turned it into verse for this post. What’s the worst thing you want to hear about if you’re an artist, photographer, writer, poet, musician, whatever apart from being ignored? I’d often wondered. Now I know. KINDA “I kinda like your kinda great kinda music

‘SUMMERTIME MADNESS’

(‘Gulp’ by Zoolon)  SUMMER DIED ON A SATURDAY You gave safe passage to your demons When the darkness came to call Waved ‘goodbye cruel world’ and whispered “Why stumble when I can fall? I’ll be the ghost who comes to haunt you The one who’ll own your every waking hour And when you’re trying to

FOR THE RECORD YOU SHOULD KNOW I FEEL THE SAME

‘After The Storm’ by Zoolon or, better put; ‘The wild and windy night, That the rain washed away, Has left a pool of tears, Crying for the day’ – Paul McCartney from the song ‘Long & Winding Road’ I’ve been reading Arthurian tales from various sources. I got hooked. Thought I’d write some words about them. ‘The Lady of The Lake’
