That Old Dream Again

Traversing tunnels of desire
Unruly life, no grid patterns
Nor treasure maps to follow
Wishing-well sky out of reach
My Pollyannaish daydreams
Ever alive, so I set out
Seeking the seer

With my dog Jake
And this old rusty truck
Driving to your town, your
Whimsical red and white barn
Banjos on the wall
Corny western art
Bucking bronco lamp
And a saddle chair

A greeting, eyes meeting
Old souls, whispers of specters
Nothing more natural
Than loving you
In the eaves in the eve
Listening to Barn Owls
Jake by the fire

You place before me
Red berries
Wine and wheat
I show you my Ford
Listening to radio stations
From Mexico

On two horses we ride
Galloping in sunshade
Leaves falling all around
An earthy bed to explore
Coming home once more
As the sun sets in the west
Hope refrains
As you suggest
Nonchalantly
Shyly
Stay
