    I have lyrics to offer and would love a collaboration

    Hi

    I write poetry and lyrics and would love to collaborate in song writing. If anyone wants to exchange ideas and potentially write songs, I'd love to hear from you.

    Cheers!

    Samples
    Hi Easlern,

    Here are two samples of my poems. Let me know what you think, please. Thanks

    Rising under the glittering dome
    Arms raised to the night sky
    Shining branches that seek
    The mysterious moon light.
    From the window you seem
    Like dancers in the wind
    With Hawaiian skirts to be
    tailored and worn on this bright night

    If dreams could be reflected
    by the light of the sun
    the sky would gleam
    like a polished mirror,
    my heart would sail
    from shining cloud to shining cloud
    until it reached yours;
    then hearts entwined
    we'd float into the unknown.

    The poems are not too bad, but as they are they would be difficult to craft into songs.

    Both have potential to make interesting song lyrics, but there would need to be a fair bit of manipulation (including more lines) to make verses and choruses out of them.

    Unless it were placed in a progressive metal song Ala Dream Theater or Fates Warning. Anything goes there...

    But yes, more would be needed I would say.

    Do you sing too? If you can set your poetry to music, somebody here could probably help with the instrumentation

    Thanks for your input. I realize that they need to be longer and undergo adjustment for songs; that's why I asked for a collaboration.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your suggestion. I don't sing, but I think I'd be good at choosing melodies for the words. I really need someone with a guitar or piano to bring the words to life.

    What type of song do you have in mind? What genre?

    Or don't you mind?
