SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: Ode to Leonard Cohen



A thousand kisses deep


on Boogy Street


with the Sisters of Mercy and Suzanne,


we'll be meeting not at the Chelsea Hotel


but at Radio City Music Hall,


dancing to the end of love.
Hallelujah!

ha ha Your first comment answered my question but I did think you were having a lovely evening anyway! A thousand kisses on Boogy Street.... sounds romantic! tee hee

Thanks for visiting this weekend, yes alas things are calming down here and I get to play again! Yea me! ha ha I've enjoyed catching up with my blog friend and you Gorgeous are no exception! Sorry to hear that your time away from the airwaves was not spent doing something more fun but I'm grateful for you that you were available to be with your family during their recent ailments and doctor visits. Whew, that can be draining and so I hope that your writing can continue to give you your creative outlet! I'm looking forward to reading more of PETRA! Have a great day!

Janeen: It surely wasn't the way I would have liked to get a respit (Greece would have been nice), but my mother is home and stable now. Thank you, gorgeous! ;)

A thousand kisses deep on Boogy Street... I didn't even look it at as sexy until you mentioned it. It does have a sultry vibe, doesn't it?

Most of the words came from songs of Leonard's. He's one of my all-time favorites. He's so spiritual and reaches deep in your soul.

Blogstalker: Leonard was truly amazing! Three hours of his souful and poetic music!

No cameras allowed. But we got some great shots (hopefully) on our cell phones. Will be posting.

Thank you, you as well! :))

Leonard Cohen is a true original, one of a kind, with marvellous longevity in a business that worships youth. He has certainly stood the test of time.

He is a bottle of seasoned wine, Lavinia! Absololutely delicious and sublime. :))

Tammy: There were two cameras -- one on either side of the venue. I'm hoping a DVD will come out. His performance was incredible. I'm still reelng and hope that anyone who is interested will be able to buy and share that wonderful night! :))
