Between The Night and Nowhere
For Natascha

Tour me in a roadster convertible…I’m all and only yours today.
We can watch the cane fields burning down to the ground,
while we’re living the dream , and it’s your dream that you planted,
right here inside my mind, just waiting to be found.

Drive me around with the top down, we can wave back at the wheat.
I smell the wildflowers mixed with horses breath and blackened earth.
Not a soul to be seen, just you and me and the scenery…
the car humming along, knowing that, here comes the rebirth.

So take me for a drive , I don’t care where,
just climb us up to the mountain top, to hear the whispering bells,
and drop me off where the crows look down
and the smokey clouds and haze paint those rural pastels.

I hear there’s a garden there that I really should see.
It has a little girl, sitting at her daddy’s feet, always asking “why?”
Between the night and nowhere is where it seems they want to be,
and the answers that she seeks are written in the sky.

Machinery hums, the cattle call, gears shift down to first.
If you hear a cicada singing, you know you’re still alive.
The whistling wind turns chill and blows and parts my hair,
while the narrow winding mountain pass thrills and terrifies.

I know and so do you, that from this scorched earth, a little seedling grows.
In a fever dream or a burnt down meadow, we can see the new seeds being sown.

Those roaming grey clouds are going to let it rain any time now, any day…
I could ride with you forever, and let it rain, ‘cuz I’m just not ready yet.. to head for home.

So, tour me in a roadster convertible…I’m all and only yours today.
We can watch the cane fields burning down to the ground,
while we’re living the dream , and it’s your dream that you planted,
right here inside my mind… this fertile ground.

    • Aww so glad you like it..but all of it, the world under construction, this poem (and who knows maybe a movie:) is all because of you,,,”and it’s your dream that you planted,
      right here inside my mind” As soon as you told me your dream, I knew something would grow from it. That’s why we are The Team:) Big Hugs Nat, and thank you for this inspiration!

    You breath ‘life’ into pictures… the images always become more vivid! Masterful use of your brilliant gifts that you share with us as your words literally repaint the scene over in our minds. ((Hugs)) Sissy Poo and keep em coming 🙂

    • Thanks Diz,for visiting my blog and leaving this unexpected and really nice comment:) This was an odd case of Natascha planting a seed in my imagination, by recounting a dream she had while in a fever. The phrase Between the Night and Nowhere appeared (in German of course:) in her dream and it just sparked and inspired me to create this world…a roadster drive on Kitely:) When it’s all done, you must come and take that ride with me Sis:) HUGS
