Stars. My southern quilt.
A thousand million pin-pricks
Each larger than me.

Poem for the Day

Posted: 20 July 2013

I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.

Oh plunge me deep in love -- put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

I Am Not Yours
Sara Teasdale 1884 - 1933

With heads in the clouds,
Hearts, now flying with angels.
Feet step out in faith.

Poem for the Day

Posted: 18 July 2013

Well I hope that I don’t fall in love with you
Cause falling in love just makes me blue,
Well the music plays and you display
Your heart for me to see,
I’ve had a beer and now I hear you
Calling out for me.
And I hope that I don’t fall in love with you.

Well the room is crowded, people everywhere,
And I wonder, should I offer you a chair?
Well if you sit down with this old clown,
Take that frown and break it,
Before the evenings gone away,
I think that we could make it.
And I hope that I don’t fall in love with you.

Well the night does funny things inside a man,
These old tom-cat feelings you don’t understand,
Well I turn around to look at you,
You light a cigarette,
I wish I had the guts to bum one,
But we’ve never met.
And I hope that I don’t fall in love with you.

I can see that you are lonesome just like me,
And it being late, you’d like some company.
Well I turn around to look at you,
And you look back at me,
The guy you’re with has up and split,
The chair next to you is free.
And I hope that you don’t fall in love with me.

Now its closing time, the music’s fading out,
Last call for drinks, I’ll have another stout.
Well I turn around to look at you,
You’re nowhere to be found,
I search the place for your lost face,
Guess I’ll have another round.
And I think that I just fell in love with you.

I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You
Tom Waits 1949 -

In preparation
Music on Maungakeikei.
The sky walk beckons.
