Ha! No, not a sea of words this morning, hiding under a vague, somewhat-unrelated and overly-long title. How about music instead? This is my friend WilderSoul’s rendition of an old poem that I wrote, back when I engaged in such frills as poetry. I am deeply humbled that someone would want to sing one of my poems, and in such a perfect way no less. My hats off. Please have a listen.
For my money, the person I read who most writes poetry that sounds like music in my ears is Pete Armetta. I’m sure he’s a poet, but I know he’s a songwriter. Now if he and WilderSoul ever got together to sing songs, I’m pretty sure my head would explode. Most of you know Pete, but for those that don’t, here’s his poems:

Wildersoul oughta do more of your stuff! Very nice and thanks for the plug,
Now I have Wildersoul earworm hahah
Yeah me too. Soundtrack of the day for sure.
I may have caught one too, but I’m sure I’ll get rid of it soon. Haha.
Pleasure Pete. You should visit her, she is very talented, just like you.
I did. Trippy interesting art!
This was great. Pretty cool to have your words sung, eh? I enjoyed Unfolding too.
Yeah, she’s quite amazing. Intense experience to hear something you wrote in music… never expected that.
You’re a lyrical man. You both are amazing
Thank you Audra.
Awesome NB. Have been to her site, she’s very creative (and she must be constantly on the go!) This was such a great surprise…I’m thinking Daniels needs to pop over…
Glad you liked, she’s pretty cool. Very creative. Haven’t heard from SD in a long time, I think she’s fairly busy these days.
Yeah, she is and I’ve only spoken with her a handful of times myself. I’ll go investigate! 🙂
That was awesome… I really need to do that soundcloud thing.
I really think so. You have musical talent. This WilderSoul reminds me a bit of you, multi-talented in many artistic ways. Except, you know, she’s much funnier than you.
The painful part.
Y’all oughta do more Soundcloud.
That would require me to do more poetry, which ain’t gonna happen. I’d like to hear Anasera do one of her own poems – or one of yours. That would make my day.
Read a story dude YAY!
Hmmm… might be an idea Pete. Will think on it. I dunno even how to do that, or what story might be appropriate…
Lots do it.
I’ve only recorded ONE and it was a few months ago and I read it pretty timidly. You do know that when you’re a famous short story author you’ll be asked to read your shit! 🙂 https://soundcloud.com/pete-armetta/audio-recording-on-wednesday-2
Yeah, you should.
Thumbs up , Trent! Loved most the second version.
Got nothing to do with me, Doc, the music is everything, it’s the soul. Amazing what something heartfelt can do to even mundane writing.
Where have you been? You absence is always noted.
Indeed, but multiplying zero by a million yields nothing.
Just been too overwhelmed with all I have to do in the blogosphere. Thanks.
Ah, now I know why your name looks familiar. Tell Wild OM said hi. lol…
Oh shit. Can you believe it. Well, what a fucking coincidence. I don’t know why I’m laughing about it but I am. I still think you suck though (now I’m kidding). I respect the hell out of that other blog.
Oh how hilarious. You two…. OM Free at Last, huh? 🙂 I’m glad you had a row, because it drew me back to have a look at this post, and there are such lovely comments about my singing. I’m all abashed now.
You did such a great job… I listen to this all the time.
Really? I saw such lovely comments here too. An earworm, it sounds so attractive somehow! 😉
I had never even heard of Soundcloud. Seems like a good idea, except that they wanted me to sign up in order to listen. Couldn’t find it on YouTube.
Really? I didn’t have to sign up.
