Moon In The Lady’s Song

You bounced your songs
off the moon last night.
I listened hard
for the notes that were mine.

Shootin' eight ball
with stars in the sky,
left planet pocket,
fire-rum with lime.

whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

The lake had footprints
scuffed on her skin,
chasing splash-laughs,
and Friday night sins.

I heard of secrets
strummed on moonbeam winds,
I listened and listened
with hope what I'd find.

whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

There are some truely wonderful images here,Pat. The lake had footprints stanza had me sailing on a moonbeam! Cleaver and unusual organization too. Great stuff here!

Whoa. Oh. Oh.... so that's what I heard when the wind kicked up. Yow, Pat, this is really nice. You may just have to write some yourself, you know.
