When Life Was Young   1 comment

*********************

This old worn out guitar
won’t let me go near as far
as that beautiful winking star

In the moonlight it seems
I’m forever tied to dreams
held in balance, life’s extremes

I find you in the morning light
And in the starlight of the night
With this I know that all is right

 ******************************

Love and cherished memories 

are tied to happy reveries 

of the days when life was young

Blue-Moon.[1]

Good Night Everybody

Born in a land that is known as “free”

A land not what it seems to be

A land few can appreciate

Because of prejudice and hate

Come away and sail with me

To a land beyond an ancient sea

A place beyond the bright sunrise

Into a place called paradise.

+

Running past islands both starboard and lee

Passing beautiful islands that do their part

In opening the journey’s mystery

That each will hold close to heart

Stop at one island and spend the time

To learn its verse and to know its rhyme

Then it’s on to another beach

To understand what it has to teach

+

Then up ahead, across the bow

A brilliant shoreline fills the eyes

The warm bright sun is setting now

Soft moonlight, stars rise in the skies

‘Tis on this shore that all will find

The means to ease and calm the mind

To find a happy world made of

The wondrous joy of peace and love.

*****************************************************

Take the journey and find your peace

Good Night Everybody !

Silvery moonlight wrapped itself around everything

and covered every surface.  A bright, full moon smiled

down on everything below her and painted the world

in a subliminal peace.  Like playful pixies, stars shyly

peeked from behind their heavenly blanket, then more

boldly became the gemstones of the sky.  A soft breeze

played a rhapsody in the palm fronds and the fragrance

of a thousand blossoms rose from all around.  The near

calm water at the moonlit beach shimmered like a beacon

welcoming me forward to where the sand met the surf.

Ah, finally, I was home !!!

Random thoughts and ideas that come in the late night, the wee hours of the morning, or maybe while I’m out mowing the lawn…, usually never when there’s a pen and paper, or a computer handy.

Blue-Moon.[1]

In the stillness of night
In this soft quiet it seems
I let my heart take flight
To reach out, touch my dreams.

.

In the light of the early dawn
When the world starts to wake
I turn and you are gone
And, again, my heart breaks

Walk with me in the shadows of the moonlight
Come look with me at the beautiful star filled skies
Fill your soul with the magic of the night
Share with me the love I see in your eyes

Dance along the mountain peaks
Sail across the shinning deep blue sea
Smell the scent of a floral woodland breeze
No one else here, just you and me

Holding you close as we dance
A slow waltz ‘cross the crowded floor
Hearts reaching for romance
And hoping hard for so much more

Laying together across the big bed
Talking softly of dreams we’ve shared
Passionate feelings dance ’round in our heads
With a smile, then a touch, then a dare

These may be jumbled and somewhat incoherent, but they’re just random
thoughts that have been rumbling around in my mind tonight.

Special Good Night Edition   4 comments

*******

This Special Edition is for the benefit and pleasure of a select few pioneers who reside in the near wilderness

in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and are concerned about 60 degree weather.  At the time these pics were

taken (4:p.m. 1/22/2013) the outside air temp was 4 deg over a fresh 6″ snow cover here, at the foot of Lake Michigan.

By the way folks, cross country skiing on this was wonderful…, not that I’m trying to rub it in or anything.

Veranda - Buena Vista - Biloxi

Sweet Dreams

Sleep doesn’t come as I close my eyes

I still see the moonlit starry skies

And hear the faint melody of the band inside

As we dance on the beautiful balcony outside

Another slow waltz, as we glide ‘cross the floor

And quietly slip away through the veranda’s back door

Was not in our mind to spend the night at a dance

When under the moonlight we dreamed of romance.

Daytime now has faded
All it’s promise is now jaded
And now comes the night
when shadow hides the light.

Shadow dreams race
As in the starlight’s glow
Reflects a moonlit face
In the cold winters snow.

The first snow of the season has arrived in Indiana
