Hidden in window
Waves of reflection
As he slips through parched fingers
Longing for his sky
To break free
If only momentarily
From this prison of glass
by Sam Craft
Moves like dripping sunlight between sheets
In the coming of last summer’s day
Amid the amber warmth of season gone
And fall’s approach
Scattered crimson crows through open door
A trail of breathing soul
Winged-wind doth carry thee home
by Sam Craft
Today I weep to the music of the Carpenters, with a depth I’ve never felt before. And I dance, to ABBA, with a glee only known to the Dancing Queen. This is me, today. All over the fricken place!

I just love ABBA I have loved them since being a small child.
The film Mamma Mia made me cool again… hehe
You know my Dad loved the film too, he actually saw it 22 times at the cinema.
His two Autistic twin friends love Meryl streep so all three of them went 22 times…giggle.
I’ll add a link to one of my favourite ABBA tracks for you, the words to it bring me hope.
I have always lived with my head in the clouds looking for the silver lining.
ABBA have helped with that, times spent alone daydreaming.
Oh….Dancing Queen is my kitchen music, it keeps me happy while TAZZING my chores.
LOVE LOVE LOVE The Carpenters too…here is a hopeless romantic for you.
When I first started dating Mr Locoman I wrote out the words to “I won’t last a day without you!” in a handmade scroll that I gave it to him on a date. We where at the canals and he got me to sing it to him. I loved the words, and they so suit our relationship.
The thing with having a huge heart and so much love to give is we feel deep longing too.
Many people fear this kind of depth and never allow themselves to connect. I have never undertood why but can see it is why I have been rejected by so many people I have loved. Also why I have felt so alone. I sense this and recognise it in you too, so glad God found a way for us to meet. Aspies…on/off with no volume control.
We feel it in all our being, every part of us. The only way to not hurt is to not care.
It’s not the way we are created to be though, holding you in prayer always.
Love you loads my lovely friend. Lees. xxx 🙂 ❤
Oh, Yay. Will listen to songs now. :))) So much in common, we have! You are such a force of light and love, my soul sister. HUGzzzzz and YOU know how I love when people dedicate songs to me. You rock. love, love, love, you. ~ Sam
Have always loved Karen Carpenter. She was taken long before I was ready for that. When I was growing up and had a bad cold, my voice would sound remarkably like hers if I used falsetto.
“I have a Dream” is my favorite song of Abba and one of my very favorites of all.
I’ve always loved her, too. Glad you enjoyed the music. 🙂 Smiles, Sam

Thanks, Sam, for taking me back to the days of wonderful music. I think we forget, at times, and music can put us right back there in the middle of the good.
