Will I Ever Know the Outer Fringes of You?

route66 route662 route663

Will I ever know the outer fringes of you?

Will I ever let you know mine?

What can be found in your out skirts?

I’ll tell you what you might find in mine…

A slow down sign or two

A proceed with caution sign too

I’ll only roll out the red carpet to welcome you into my inner city

IF and only when I find you  worthy

In my outer city limits you’ll see a cheap motel

For the lone traveler just passing through

Stay the night and no longer than that

You’ll also find a cheap diner

Where you  can eat on the go

You’ll find a gas station

One with several sun faded signs

Where gas is just 10 cents a gallon

I want you to hurry and fuel up

So you can leave as fast as you can.

LONG BEFORE LIGHT

 

There is a smell and feel of dawn long before the light

 

Dawn smells like:

 

Lavender

 

An untraveled path

 

A rose about to bloom

 

A hot cup of steaming green tea

 

 

There is a smell and feel of dawn long before light

 

Dawn feels like:

 

A newborn’s breath on my cheek

 

My lover’s kiss on my eager lips

 

A hug from some one I’ve not hugged in a while

 

An unexpected smile
