Missing Rib

Should we be amazed,
Denise Williams song "Silly"
Rotates in my head,
A song she forgot about
In her ear it resonates

    How ya doin' Scribe? I'm good, just have had writers block for quite awhile. I also moved over to Writerscafe. Over on that site everything is free unlike this site. Come on over and check it out.

    This was charming & deep. I always have music in my head. It keeps the "voices" out. ;)

    The biblical. refrence in the title is quite stimulating. I too often have songs playing in my head. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    I am not familiar with the song or singer, but yes, it sure is amazing when two people share the same thoughts at the same moment,,,

    Great work honoring Denise Williams and her talent..Thanks for stopping by..At church yesterday, our pastor did a sermon using a soldier's story as illustration for his message..He told a boy fourteen years old who ran away from home, lied about his age, and joined up in the army during WWII..He was so young and maybe small that they used him as a deck hand on the ship and someone to keep things clean..When they went ashore, he was not supose to go and did not even have a weapon..Sara

    He grabbed a weapon from someone dead and went on up on the island fighting..He and four more ended up in a foxhole together..One got killed..The enemy threw in a grenade and he kicked it out..Then another grenade came in and he fell on it..He survived and had to have 20 surgeries..Sara

    Poet Linton,I just love listening to oldies.Kinda bring the mindset back to times long gone,but still has that "feel-good" era to it and I guess will bring that to generations in the future.Thanks for your great comment earlier this week.Im slowly but surely heading back into the game again,taking one day at the time.Take Care Poet!

    Would it be silly of me to admit that is one of my favourite songs Scribe? Needless to say I absolutely love this write of yours. You always take my mind into another realm, which is a good thing ;) hope you are doing good!

    hmmm, I think this must be a song I don't know. I like what you did with it though. songs get stuck in our minds and I have had some that I just could not get them out of my mind!

    Its a true story...a few months back, This song was in my mind. Out the blue my wife said to me I don't know why I'm hearing Denise W. singing silly of me...she sung the exact part that played in my mind. A song that old, just couldn't be coincidental. Thanks for the words of kindness Harry!
