UPON A DAWN
Sunlight finds a home upon a rested solemn face,
a momentary spectacle the shadows soon replace.
Lips and eyes expressionless so softly do they speak,
of beauty, love and innocence, all wonder at its peak.
Ivory sheets of silk and lace define her tender frame,
such features paint a picture to immortalize her name.
Unconscious radiation from a source that runs so deep,
as long as she’s beside me in my dreams she’ll always sleep.

This is all borrowed material, just sharing…Enjoy!
So as a new member of the EMP (Experience Music Project), I get a free one-year subscription to Rolling Stone, the magazine. It’s hard to believe but it was way back in college when I was last an active subscriber and reader of this fantastic mag. I remember removing all the covers and papering my wall in a collage of rock ‘n’ roll stars and other celebrities. Sadly, I tossed my collection away years ago when I decided to stop hoarding. Self-intervention is hard, but satisfying.
So I crack open my first edition of RS in years and my head was spinning…in a good way. Here is a summary of Issue 1157.
