The Weeping Flute........

Source

Across the winshield move the visions
created by a desert dance
The sexual coupling of soft flute
of desert moon
of mysterious chance

I will not grow bitter of lost
youth or of
my knowing better
I cannot go around that either
as if it doesn't
matter

Tonight though there are dreams
and they contain just
enough moonlight
Illuminating every moment
making everything more than
allright

When the lights of Albuquerque
glow above the rocky hills I will turn south
maybe driving on to the senora
And I will only stop somewhere
inside dawns aura

For right now right here
serenity rides shotgun
I've no destination
Wishing only to dissapear into
the desert blooms
and my imagination

Shine on desert moon .....shine on..........

Reads like an accepting of the way things are as the sad kind of memory imaginings slowly fade away with the sun and the better ones rise with the moon.

I absolutely love this. You have described perfectly that mood that comes over most of us from time to time...to drive and drive and just be one with our surroundings. Very, very nice. :) Theresa

P.S. Not to intervene inappropriately, but I love that you "insisted" your daughter "have a beautiful day." It is clear that you and your daughter have a tender, sweet, and wonderful relationship. What a great blessing. :)
