Tales From The Happy Monkey

Flatline whispers
It’s quiet on the lake
Pull the plug
The grid flickers
Darkened down
Like the shadows
Beneath + between
Misty wisps
Dancing across
This fading light of day
Where tall trees
Eat the sun
The light devoured
As night sets in
A soul goes free
Now solace in the fade
No rage
No age
No cage
No stage
A simple return
To a kinder place

Banner day yesterday. On Thursday night a complete guitar arrangement with melodic structure came tumbling out almost fully formed. Writers out there will appreciate this confluence of awesome. Sat down at the local yesterday morning, composed lyrics. Went to the park, wrote the words for another, the home for grub and a third set of ink laid down for a third tune. Went to bed with that sense of rewarded exhaustion only a honest day’s work provides.
