In the good times and the bad times we can all find inspiration
in the lyrics of songs, the words from poetry or a favourite book.

Watch the video of Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge read aloud to discover how a little boy used some of his hidden treasures to bring back an old lady's memories.
Softly chanting my name…
My eyelids flicker
Surroundings become a blur of colour…
Then sharp focus returns
Sears through my head
Pen to paper
She spins through my mind
Leaving a white path of simple
Harsh red light of my bedside clock
Bluntly reflects my exhaustion.
A gaping black yawn swallows my thoughts
I tumble into my bed
Soothing silk against my cheek…
My eyes melt into blissful warmth
I am whirled into oblivion
My inner self awakens
Flashing through echoes of memories
Reality and dreams meld
Past present and future become indistinct.
She twists and snakes
Gambols and frolics
Turns and twirls
Creating dreams of colour and vibrance
Like music playing in my mind.
She explores infinite depths
A single sorrowful notes resonates
She flows like a river crashing over falls
Swirling down unknown paths
Lengthening, deepening Encompassing.
Sleep awakens the child within me
