WINNING WRITERS’ WALL OF FAME
Competitive Dash Winner for June, 2012:
Follow Your Soul
Soaring notes flying free
Circling unequivocally round the brain
The guitar twangs, harmony begins
The rhythm pounding in my soul
I close my eyes to hear it
Nodding my head in time
No reason, no rhyme to all that is
The soaring of the vocals soaring my heart
It grows quiet, then rises again
I listen in pure wonderment
How can someone move the soul
With only a voice and a guitar
And a band behind him
God’s gift of music
Touching them from high above
Giving others comfort
Making them feel the love
How can we feel depressed
How can we be lonely
When we hear something
That moves the soul so powerfully
