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
