Looking For A Palm Tree

Living in the cold of WI this winter I am dreaming of palm trees and white sand beaches, warm tropical breezes and maybe even a little umbrella. It’s going to be so cold here Governer Scott Walker is thinking of shutting down all the schools in WI with windchill expected to be -45 to -55. And I hear there are still tickets to the Packer Game on Sunday with temps only expected to be -30 with the windchill!

Here is a song I wrote with my husband Bob last night. I think I need steel drums, give it that Jamaica sound! I love reggae music, how about you? I’m going to have to learn to play it though, the beat is totally different than what I am used to!

Looking for a Palm Tree

Locked up in a corner of time

knocked down by waves of life

Driftwood casualties

accusing me of never done crimes

*

Looking for a palm tree

In a concrete jungle

Choosing to believe in love

Despite what I see

I’m looking for a palm tree

In a concrete jungle

*

World’s full of possibilities

alternate realities

truth is so hard to see

On the beach of abnormality

*

But Seeds grow in the dark

Spring up through cracks

in the sidewalk

*

Looking for a palm tree

In a concrete jungle

Choosing to believe in love

Despite what I see

I’m looking for a palm tree

In a concrete jungle

    Yup that’s cold and serves as a reminder why I moved south. But don’t get too excited about those palms and warm sandy beaches. It’s been a frigged 45 for days and expecting to go into the 30s. At the beach…I don’t want to think about how cold it is. And while you may think that’s not so cold remember we don’t have winter coats and the only shoes we have are flip flops. I guess I can’t complain too much, I still haven’t turned on the heat yet.

    Hope you can visit sunny Florida soon, keep warm.
