Lyrical Sunday - Olympics

I watched:

I watched, trapped within the moment,
As the thousands of miles,
Land and sea, earth and sky
Were eclipsed by the spectacle,
Of history unravelling, literature relived.

Breath caught between the drum beats,
Stirred by the sounds, emotions and memories
Reminders of the landmarks, the country I miss
Thinking of friends, holding tears back as
Children signed, singing with their hands,
Welcoming the world into the heart of London.

  1. Beautiful and charged with emotion. The choirs were all so beautiful - I loved the signing one too and the tour of Great Britain taking in the young voices of Scotland, Wales & Ireland in beautiful natural surrounds.

    And all those drums!!!! Wow! The sound in the stadium must have been hypnotic as the beat took the senses on such an historic journey through modern history.
