Thanksgiving music and pictures

from http://gregmitchellwriter.blogspot.com/:

“When Beethoven, late in his life, and fully deaf, survived a serious illness, he wrote a slow movement for one of his fabled final string quartets, calling it a  “convalescent’s holy song of Thanksgiving,”  now known as the Heiliger Dankgesang.  I am not alone in considering it one of  the greatest and most profound  pieces of music ever written.

Links for all art are at the bottom of the page.  Happy Thanksgiving for all who celebrate it.

Losing Your Art

Lisa Cox

Creating art
Pouring out
Your heart
On paper
Canvas
A building
Leaving something
Beautiful
Meaningful
Thoughtful
Behind
A little bit
Of you
Exposed for
All the world
To see
You hope
Your vision
Outlasts you
Will be seen
In the future
You will be
Remembered
Your art will live
Life rolls on
Art as fragile
As our own life
Fire can burn
Flood can wash away
Paint can cover
Your art may
Have flickered
For a brief
Moment
Like a firefly
Only for an
Evening
That is enough
To light your
Way
To begin again
To start anew

Pearls

Lisa Cox

Plucked from
The ocean depths
Pried from an
Oyster’s gullet
Pearls
Run against your
Teeth gritty
Like the sandy
Bottom of the
Ocean bottom
Salty like tears
Smashed with
A hammer
Reduced to white
Dust
The same
Dust left over
When they
Tear down
Your house
Pearls
Fragile, lovely
Strung together
Nestling against
Your throat
Each one fragile
A scream
A death
Sobbing
Pain untold
Strung together
Hung together
Light as a feather
Creating beauty
Pulled from the depths

Tenderness

Lisa Cox

A Petal
Is falling
Like a rain drop
Will you catch it
Or let it drop
Discarded?
One petal lost
Is no loss
For this flower
Yet they continue
To fall,
Why do you shake
The flower so,
Petals falling
Each one
Irreplaceable
Each bringing the
Flower closer
To that point
When it no
Longer flowers
Do not pluck
Do not pluck
Gather the petals
Even parted from
The flower
They cling to beauty
You are ripping
please do
not rip and pull
You must not
Rip the head
From the flower
You must not
Please no
The leaves
Are scattered
The flower
The flower
Is falling
It
No longer
Flowers
Go
There is nothing
Left to deflower

Now for Some Birdy
