I think it's just a normal cigarette @Dutchbeat... sorry to disappoint.  :-\

Here's a close-up (I could go closer but I'd have to find the original):



But I think the image will need approving before that will work.

Hi, yes I think I will have a go as this looks comp looks like fun. Can you select which pic you like, or are they dished out randomly at the end. I would like the piano/van pic ideally, as I fancy writing something quirky after all my recent serious stuff which has resulted in my wife telling me I need to get some cheery up pills!  ::) So not sure of the comp rules on this!

Here is a pic I am offering up. It is by a photographer called Andre Govia who specialises in taking atmospheric shots of abandoned places around the world. He has a book on Amazon.

This pic is of an abandoned theme park which is about 20 miles from where I live. I love this pic, on so many levels, and am sure it will make great inspiration for a song! Good luck whoever gets it/picks it!



Cheers! Michael  ;)

If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

  • Music is what feelings sound like
ok - I have just captured mine! :D I went to a local village feast this night and there were some dramatic fireworks, synchronised with music... and I took a short clip of it :) (What strikes me most is the fact that these very small villages (approx. 3000 residents) make these really big spectacles, which bring out the locals' immense determination (and pride) and the effort that they put into things that they are most passionate about)

Here's a link to the very short 'video':

@Mar T. - can this kind of video be embedded in the thread?

Because my energy level is still pretty low, I can't promise that I'll be able to finish a song, but I'll give it my best shot  ::Note::

There are some nice inspirations to choose from  ::thumb::

He's a poem that well hopefully inspire someone or not ::Suzy::

My pen is poised, what shall I write,
The mind is 'dark', it needs some light,
Some 'inspiration' would be enough
To trigger the fingers and do a rough
Transcript of thoughts which might be pleasing,
But somehow at present, I'm into squeezing
My brain, to think up a suitable start,
Why aren't I a person who's 'grey matter' is smart,
When out of the blue a sentence appears,
The brain reacts and the numbness clears,
To reveal a startling piece of Lit,
That suddenly becomes a Hit,
That would be great, but the chances are,
A million to one! Oh! Lets retire to the bar!
