First – Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends! May your holy days be filled with peace and family.

Another band I love the sound of the past few years is Mumford & Sons – it sometimes feels like I am listening to a Chasing Tiger poem set to music – the lyrics are just amazing prose.

Winter winds lyricsI keep reading over the lyrics of “Winter Winds”; I adore the first line. So today’s prompt is As the winter winds litter”.

Again I am attaching the complete lyrics in case you want to play with the whole song in your poem. Credit goes to Universal Music Publishing.


Another poem I wrote based on  Bonnie Raitt’s song “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (totally different day) is Ice Covered.
