**Note: I'm always curious what will happen if other people put music to my lyrics. If you love a lyric and feel compelled, please take it and run**
A compatriot in Seth Godin's "Creative's Workshop" offered me this prompt: "What would a song with questions that are not answered be like?" She was telling me; "[Another thing Gertrude Stein] explored in some of her work was the act of questioning. The use of questions in the work lends urgency, and it is most interesting when the questions are left unanswered, or even better, answered with another question."
So here's what showed up:
Who is the giver, who is the gift?
Who is the lion, whom with the Lamb sits?
When does bestowing, become behooving?
Was it a gift? Was it a plan?
Whence did the word come? Who did it quote?
Why does it differ from mouth to the spoke?
Why am I wondering what fiddles and cats sing?
Am I just mud? Am I a ghost?
Am I dreaming or fast asleep
Bored stiff or edged on my seat
When is the story is complete?
What are the riches that I can bring with me?
When will it falter that this too shall pass?
How is a river, not just the same water?
What is the limit of expanses so vast
