This week I thought I’d play a little fast and loose with the Bonfire night them by choosing a song from the band Bonfire – see how I did that! Nice one Linda 🙂
I tried to find a poem about bonfires, honestly I did; but they were all either too long or too depressing and I think I’ve probably given you enough angst to be going on with this month.
This song by Bonfire is called ‘You Make Me Feel’ and I think fits the bill rather nicely as this writing prompt is to write about what this song makes you feel.
Are you sad, reflective, happy or glad to be free of something that has left your life? Perhaps you feel creative or inspired to try something new. Whatever the feeling, now is the time to sit down, tune in and listen to the still small voice that speaks from the heart as the song plays in the background.
As usual if you want to share your thoughts and writing I’d love to read it, and so would my lovely readers. However, it may be private and for your notebook only.
My effort is below:
I’m reflective, I have been for most of the year. It has been a roller coaster of events, circumstances and emotions across so many areas of my life. This song reminds me that this time is drawing to a close and I can never revisit that which is past and those who inhabit that past are lost to me, at least in this physical reality.
I’ve had many sleepless nights with only my roiling thoughts to keep me company. Thoughts that range from global concerns to deeply personal loss and the things I could/should/would have done had I known what I know now. The dustsheets on the album cover remind me of the turmoil when your inner house is disrupted by change.
