Once upon a Saturday night...

Once upon a time it was a Saturday night
and on the boulevard we rambled until the
moon took us to it's hiding place where lovers
played at midnight I guess that was so long
ago I couldn't find the way back but maybe
if I'd watch the moon she'd show me once again

Then came the dawn, could we face it together
as we drive on the deserted streets and boulevard
it gives all new meaning to the word loneliness
So we need Sunday morning and the flowers bloomin
to ring the bells and chimes for worshipers to find

the  ramblers and sinners to repent, then go home again

 We await another Saturday night to star all over again

the moon will shine tonight

So once upon a time there was a Monday...
the sun shone into our eyes and blinded we revealed
our true selves to be as lonely as the freeway traffic
which never ends but leaves you with a hollowness
our souls need redemption, but first comes celebration

Americana, pure, true and plaintive. This reminds me of my younger days in the 70's. Reads like the opening to a novel, and in truth would make a great story!

This reaches way down into the soul, Dale; and it makes one think. Love and peace. Regis

This is deep and soul-searching, Dale, and the unique style you adopt here is very fitting for the kind of "not quite sure what I'm lookin for" kinda questing that we do so much of at times in our lives. Your writes always remind me of the vast open spaces and are so full of a dusty kind of atmosphere that is very evocative. I am listening to the new queen of country rock as I read this: Gina Villalobos - and it fits perfectly - as it would have your other stunning write: "Open doors... shutters flying". I think you could easily write screenplay: you capture mood and place perfectly. Your writing seems so grounded and yet intriguingly enigmatic. You leave me always wanting to know more about the slices of life you depict. An interesting portrait of the less than satifying cycle of unfulfilled celebration and redemption. Excellent, thank you.
