New Country

Updated on July 30, 2013

New Country

New Country

The language is strange to my ears,

but I know it.

Its cadence settles into my soul,

filling every space.

The food is hot on my tender palate,

but I eat, ravenous.

The meal satisfies like no other before.

The streets wind and twist,

but each turn is familiar,

holding the promise of new adventure.

The single soul that I encounter,

recognizes my soul,

returning at last, to this new country

      No problem I am new to the craft of writing, not reading and I know what I like. At some point in the game I may have a go at poetry.

      I have a question for you. is it possible to place a new hub at the beginning of my posted hubs? If so; how?

      You can re edit any of your pieces. Just go into your list and add whatever you want to your posted hubs. I think that is what you are asking....good luck!

      What I was really looking for was how to re-position hubs, to change their order :-)

      Oh, well, I think you can do that in the spotlighted hubs section....sorry, I am relatively new to this forum as well, perhaps someone else is a little more knowledgeable!

      I love it! You have such a gift for capturing those fleeting, significant moments. I have felt that feeling of being at home, when away from home. Wonderful!

      You are one of my favorite writers/poets here in Hubland and beyond because you always enthrall and intrigue me with your shadowy words which take me into another beautiful deep mysterious world and quite frankly I don't want to return to real life, lol.

      lake erie time 12:04am still listening to Stereolab - who are some of your musical favorites?

      Thanks to my parents I am a bit old school. Harry Chapin, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors...my 80's roots bring us to the Cure, The Cowboy Junkies and Melissa Etheridgeand Alanis Morrisette And my newest favorites are Lauren O'Connell and Loreena McKennit. To name a few....a crazy mix...but there it is. Thank you for reading this one. It is a favorite because of what inspired it and it means lot that you think it well done!

      I saw Harry Chapin twice at Hamilton Place before he died from the very front row - how cool is that?

      Love the Doors and Jim.

      Love the voice of Grace Slick.

      Cowboy Junkies is a Toronto band from Canada whom I seen play live and they do a lovely sublime version of Sweet Jane by the Velvet Underground and Loreena McKennit is a Canadian from Stratford, Ontario and I sat next to her at a Michael Nyman Band concert at Massey Hall in Toronto and she had beautiful flaming red hair

      Yes I can see and read a lot of this music in your writing

      12:38am lake erie time and listening to Grinderman , an off shoot band from one of my favorite songwriters Nick Cave and the bad seeds

      Yes, "Sweet Jane" is a favorite. From way back! And it is nice to know that you can see their influence! I guess for a jersey girl I have done alright!

      I am glad you know it my friend - I am a big fan of Tom Waits and have seen him 3 three times in concert and Springsteen live in concert 6 times.

      Good afternoon from Colin and his cats Tiffy and Gabriel with first cup of coffee and listening to a concerto by Handel to start my day and I wish for you a great day too
