Difference, Dandelions and Love

Climb upon the notes
and we shall sing a morning song.
You are the daylight in darkness
with your sunflower smiles.

Sing hearts that are different.
Sing eyes that bloom in dandelions.
Sing hands that reach with love.

Music wings will take us
beyond bullies, doubters
and definitions to open fields
where we can blossom as who we are.

We are the rainbow formed from tears
we no longer have to shed,
together we are a tapestry created
by coloring outside the lines.

Sing hearts blessed to be different.
Sing eyes that see the beauty in dandelions.
Sing hands that heal with the touch of love.

Count me in, Susie. I love to sing a different song whenever I can* and your morning song is delightful.

Besides, in reality, I do like dandilions and sunflowers.

*I have been asked by a church choir director to NOT SING in his choir. Seems I will have to wait until Heaven to get back into The Choir.

Musical, lyrical, and a lovely invocation for a Monday. Fine stuff, indeed.

Beautifully unified from climbing on notes all the way to being a rainbow formed by tears and coloring outside the lines. And singing again, eyes, hearts, hands. Bravo!

How wonderful that you returned to Veda Hills music. This is such a delightful song-like poem. I especially love the refrain.

Yes, this was one big grin for me. Also reminded me that, even though it's July, allies celebrate PRIDE all year long. Thinking on the former negative vibes the singer has taken companions away from on the journey. LOVED THIS, Susie, and love me some dandelions. Amy
