" Turn the silver over in your pocket for luck, when you see the new moon "



Don't fall in love with me

For I'm a gypsy boy at heart

I've always been a loner

Right from the very start

I've never let anyone in

To compromise my heart

And I've never let anyone go, without a piece of me

For my own self protection

Instinctively I'll keep you at bay

I guard my heart with constant vigil

Because it means so much to me

For a child of the divine,

Always stands alone

The prairie is my playground

The yipping coyote is my friend

I run across the river

And never get my feet wet

Slipping and sliding over the waterfall

My humour knows no bounds

I take the world by storm

And shake it to its lintels

Darting along the walls and dykes

I never like to stand still

So standing here before you

A wild wild angel I have always been

Present in this time, but not of this world

I am an ilk of a different kind

I live for every vital moment

I always see the up side of life

Money don't mean a thing to me

Its mutual friendship every time

So don't bore me with your penthouse

Don't try to buy my love

Stocks and shares are not my thing

Spiritual food I crave

You can keep your flash ferrari

And your status symbols so fine

Just give me some old time country music

Hank Williams every time

So hitch up honey to my wagon

If you can stand the furious pace

I'll love you until forever

With all my power and might

We'll sing and dance to the cows come home

And evolve together each day

You'll never have cause to doubt me

For we'll smile our cares away

Serenading all our sunsets

And listening for the crack of dawn

Running barefoot in the bayou

With the full moon at our backs

We'll roam the whispering sands

Sojourn in the towering canyons

We'll grow young together in style


...Now there's something you didn't expect...

There's A Tear In My Beer! Hank Williams and I'm sitting at the campfire. Coyote gets the leftovers. Ready for the storyteller, Peter. Did you bring a guitar, inspiration man? No, I didn't expect it. I like it! A different side, Honky Tonk canyon man!
Pass the pork 'n beans fired in the can!

Reminds me of a quote: When you lock others out, you lock yourself in.

Good work. Love the pic. I have scenes like that near me.

Such freedom, such joy in your words--and I love that pic. I could get lost there and wouldn't mind a bit. :) BRAVO, Poet and friend!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I always expect quite a captivating poem from you, Peter; and I'm seldom disappointed.

And give me those towering canyons and Country Music, any day of the week. Running barefoot in a bayou ain't too bad either!
