A few extra words today, couldn’t resist them. What role does music play in your life? When do you most need to listen to it? Your favorite genre? Artist? Instrument?
Is it connected to a specific emotional state? Do you use music to soothe or catapult your being? Maybe you have a specific memory where the music played an important role?
Words: dawn, fingers, blue, smooth, strings (and added in by Elizabeth: minstrel, flow, jangle, dangle)
Be my minstrel; play me
the blues–I will flow,
blue or not. Run a bottleneck
over those guitar strings
and I will jangle my dangling
bracelets. If you are smooth,
and in the mood for romance,
keep wailing on that saxophone,
’til fingers are sore
and night becomes dawn.
