It's always fun to co-write with another person…
the outcome can be surprising, weird, fun, or very serious.
The piece below was co-written with a new friend of mine who has a similar style to mine…
I liked the result and thought I would share and encourage others to try this kind of creative exercise!
A crow looks sinister
Sculling across leaden skies
But the hidden song of a lark
Becomes a pleasant surprise.
Late winter fields lay barren
No hint of life discerned
Buried beneath the frozen soil
Awaiting the sun's return
The hurts long remembered
That consumed me oh, so much
Dissolve away in a moment
From just my lover's touch
Just like the leaves in springtime
Awakened and newfound
Two souls begin their life again
Love sprouts from fallow ground
