This is my FAWM no1
Backing is - theswamp.sty. nothing else.
Have others but they need more work before posting here. Well so does this - but I felt like posting something.

Ah well back to writing. Only 10 to go! Cheers - Richard.

Time Together

Bossy cat will munch minced chicken
We eat pills and cereal
Birds eat bargain bread and bathe
Meandering through the morning meal

Time Together sharing mornings treats
Time Together blessed
Content with food and friends and summer sun
Time Together blessed


Cat is gone and chased the birds
We're glued to our chairs
There's things to do but what's the rush
We'll plan the day and our affairs

Time Together sharing mornings treats
Time Together blessed
Content with food and friends and summer sun
Time Together blessed


Tomorrow brings uncertain-ty and strife
I spend precious moments with my wife

Time Together sharing mornings treats
Time Together blessed
Content with food and friends and summer sun
Time Together blessed
Time Together blessed

Rich -

That's an interesting mix of "instruments"! What is the running water sound? You do come up with very interesting imagery to populate your songs! I like that... Keep it up!

Hi Floyd,
Just liked the sound of this style under 'New age style with audio loops'. 'Oriental new age with swamp loop'. A hell of a mixture. Not totally appropriate but interesting. I like the idea of trying to incorporate natures sounds with the other sounds we use and make. Sort of ties things together somehow. - Cheers - Richard.

Thanks for the comment on this one. The loops fascinate me as their sounds weave in and out of the music. - Cheers - Richard

Cool song. The imagery is strong albeit different -- in a positive way. Enjoyed it.

love the nature sounds! I think about adding nature sounds to some of my songs but have only done it once.

I the enjoy the out side the box style you have here and the simple picture your lyrics paint

I like this a lot. It's honest and real. Musically it is unique, but it all works.

I saw that FAWM thing and wondered if I was going to join in. So many things happened this month, so I'm kinda glad I didn't commit. That's one reason I have been scarce around here over the past few weeks.

I like the imagery in the song, and tells a unique aspect of life. Not totally sure the music fits the words but hey, I'm glad you took the challenge to start writing in the FAWM challenge. If that's song #1, you're probably late to the game so I guess you gotta write, write, write, write, and write some more to catch up.

Thanks olemon. Appreciate those comments.

Thanks Herb for listening and commenting . Got through the 14 songs (with a bit of a struggle) so have plenty of basic material to try and turn into something i would like to hear. And share. Cheers.
