With a little help from Bono.


Early morning sunrise - a brilliant orange flaming sky is the background to an empowering anthem pulsating out of the speakers situated throughout the kingdom....... YES I have changed my theme song! And, it's about bloody time.



Awake! Awake to the echoing welcome of my friend Bono and his band of inspiration........a new day begins............
I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running.



It's a new day.........the day I am Queen for the day..........trying to find what I'm looking for.......



when I proclaim that henceforth, our streets will have no names.



I want to run

I want to hide

I want to tear down the walls

That hold me inside

I want to reach out

And touch the flame

Where the streets have no name



Equality, companionship, kinship will reign......



I will level the rugby playing field.........as Queen.



Dance like you can...........
Together! Dance..........



The kingdom will become a community where all are welcome.

Where all are treated with respect and dignity

Where we look to the window in the skies

and realize.....

We all matter.

In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

Let the dogs and children run freely and safely along our streets with no name.........
Let us find what we are looking for.......our hearts beating as One?
yes.
My kingdom is where the music plays.......





ps. May I add that as Queen, I will have a striking resemblance to Helen Mirren? And if I walkaway, walkaway, walkaway will you follow? :)



A Royal purple prompt from Sunday Scribblings...........Queen for the day.......hmmm.....

I've always loved the guitar work in this song. Reminds me why The Edge is the best in the biz.

This picture captivates in ways I can only begin to describe. Need to think it through some more before sharing more words.

Popped by from Michele's. Hope you're having a great weekend so far!

Gorgeous photo! I love the way you've combined dreams and lyrics, but I have to admit I'm a bit concerned about the whole nameless streets thing. I have enough trouble finding my way home even when they're properly marked!

Tori said...
