I have a mirror that shows another face.

I have a face that asks to hear a song.                        

I have a song with room for light.

I have light that is the red inside every color.

I have a color that is waiting for its name.

I have a name that means tenderness.

I have tenderness caught in a mirror.

Thank you, no (but that would be a wonderful experience)...that melody certainly emerged from distant influences by them

I was actually sitting down to lay down some ambient tracks for video production when this unfinished piece loaded up and it REALLY made my day. Love that spark.
Thanks for all you do.

Being able to create stuff - images, poems, music, song - what would our lives be without it.

Very beautiful collaboration work with Hanan ,mr Leach.I liked your poem,exspecially lines three and four,ingenious!And Hanans photoes,and their titles are very lyrical themselves,so they fit in well with your literature.

Well... I must say, I'm not one for parallelism in this...heaviness, I guess the word would be, but your diction and descriptions are absolutely amazing.
I have light that is the red inside every color.
Wow. And the image fits very well with the overall theme of the work.

Thank you very much for reading and for the comment. Yes, any kind of strict form - this being an invented one, but obviously strict - can go awry if the form overcomes the content. Glad this worked for you.
