First Fruits

[avatar]

For those who follow the tradition, please post the link to your first fruits here and tag them #firstfruits. Happy 50/90!

NOTE: If you're not aware, First Fruits is a way of dedicating or offering your first song to either the Muse or your own spiritual belief system. You can also dedicate it to this wonderful songwriting community as a thanks for existing! It's totally optional, of course.

Post your #FirstFruits here so we can all enjoy them!

The title of this "first fruit" isn't without a reason. Be warned!

Great idea, although if others' offerings are watermelons, mine is a grape tomato.

Here's some ambient fruits, maybe the essence of a fruit? Like the smell of oranges?

Timeline wise, this was the first song I've written this summer! I was waiting on some drum tracks. My first fruits challenge--a prayer to help me manage anxiety called Fleeting Moments.

I just sent this text to my family and thought some people here might appreciate it:

Going through the First Fruits thread, which is for dedicating your first song to your personal spiritual beliefs. So far we got:
Tuesday Night Music Club (the weekly Zoom call for FAWMers)
The new FAWM site
The Fourth of July rings hollow this year
Cow Dung
Mindfulness
Learning to thank the Lord for rainy days
Out with the old, in with the new
Waiting for the love promised in a tarot reading to appear
Keeping oneself centered amidst all that's going on in the world
You can keep your nasty lies
"The camel has one hump/ The dromedary , two/ Or else the other way around/ I'm never sure. Are you?"
(I couldn't describe the @stephenwordsmith song so I just put the link)
Instrumental
Meditative ambient
Online dating
Summer
Covid ruining their vacation (true story)
A prayer to help manage anxiety

I was definitely expecting a lot more religion

@Complexissimple What a diverse list!! LOVE it hahaha particularly Cow Dung which I somehow missed listening to...

[avatar]

Thanks, @katestantonsings and @Complexissimple! I hate to be petty, but the title of my song is actually "Cow Dung OD"! (Turned out to be my best song so far... I thought it questionable, but it has gone downhill since that!)

Howdy! A little bit late... But here's another one!
