THE TIN MAN, SNOWFLAKES & A POEM

‘Chasing the Sun’ by Zoolon

I oiled the creaky hinges to the door into the eaves of my attic studio today and for the first time understood why the Tin Man out of The Wizard of Oz had such an addiction to oil.

Saturday morning, I woke up to a curtain of snowflakes charging horizontally across my eyeline. They were carried along on a storm called, ‘The Mini Beast from the East’.  I tried writing a lyric about it, but no joy. Snow = right mood orchestral or surreal sound art. The thing is I had some words in my head. I’m a songwriter, not a poet but this time settled on just words with no melody to hide behind. 

MAGIC TO THE EYES OF SMALL PEOPLE

Carried on the east wind

That freezing cold easterly

Cocky springtime overlooked

Silent snowflakes as noisy starlings

A murmuration of cloud shavings

Whirling white, swooping, nosediving

United, they put on the gig of all gigs

Hypnotizing a frosty festival audience

Magic to the eyes of small people 

Time for some music, an instrumental, ‘Bread & Jam’ I wrote just to have a bit of fun with a guitar. I hope you enjoy;

One from Emmy the Great. This number has the title ‘Easter Parade’. Its from her ‘First Love’ album. Again, I hope you enjoy. She’s magic and writes great lyrics;
