hollywood nights

We circled the streets under
Hollywood stars to see the Hollywood sights.
Stood in lines behind velvet ropes
on those Hollywood nights.

Stayed out til dawn
& hit the beach
to realize the perfect dream
is still within reach

Santa Monica days led us to
Huntington Beach & Dana Point;
surfing, whale watching
then hitting the latest joint

The times of our endless Summer;
hitting the road, not looking back.
We gave it our all
until time ran out.

Dancing in the yard

It was a long summer afternoon
a crackling fire lit the yard
the southern sun was setting
while I strummed my old guitar

It was her way of moving to the music
she captured the glowing cinders in her eyes
she danced with the slightest sway in her hips
and her heavenly body torched my skies
