Collaboration

 

 

Like choir hymns or harmonies heard

A blending of thought and subtle word

That mixes well two single souls

Creating beauty within the whole

 

The mixed and muddled of the minds

Swirl and spin, become combined

With an edit here and a comma there

The once singular becomes the rare

 

You hold the words I cannot find

For the thoughts trapped in my mind

And when your pen begins to numb

I’ll find more words and lend you some

 

You make me laugh, I’ll make you cry

Your love drips wet, my wit so dry

In the press we squeeze our thoughts

And find the beauty together wrought

 

This magic found in measured verse

The lyric long where words come first

The musings and broth of single roles

Blends a hearty soup to feed the soul

    Brad, this is so beautiful!! I love collaborating with you!! It always amazes me how two people can share the same thoughts and ideas. I love collaborating with you because it seems to come so naturally. I don’t know if it’s because we are like minded or if you fill me with so much inspiration the words just seem to flow, but whatever it is, I’m already looking forward to our next one! I am so grateful for you!

      Thank you, my dear fiend! I always enjoy our collaborations for all the same reasons. You are such a pleasure to work with and an exceptionally gifted writer. We do share a unique ability to see things in the same light and the freedom to express to each other without fear. That is special! I, too, look forward to our next opportunity to blend our words and thoughts, but I am going to leave it to you to find the subject for the next one. Thanks for always being exactly who you are! ❤🌹😘❤
