From your lips she drew the hallelujah.

A short side note — Leonard Cohen died yesterday, and if you’re not familiar with his work, you should look him up. Most people know the song “Hallelujah”, as it was covered by Jeff Buckley in 1994, and it’s considered the definitive version of the track. I can’t listen to it without crying, though that has nothing to do with Cohen’s death. It made me cry well before that. You can listen to Buckley’s version here.

On to the prompt now. The first thing that popped to mind honestly was “gold,” as “or” is French for gold. I’m not sure why that popped into my head first, as one would think the contraction “or” would be more obvious, but my brain doesn’t always work on the same wavelength that other people’s do, I guess. I like gold, but I don’t like how it looks on me. I prefer silver jewelry, though the only piece of gold jewelry I own is my high school ring — it’s white gold, however.

    I think Jeff Buckley’s version is absolutely beautiful, what a tragic loss when he passed. Leonard Cohen was a exceptional wordsmith, poet and songwriter.
