Looking For A Palm Tree

Palm tree (Photo credit: F H Mira)

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

RUN!

a bad chap in trouble
robbed the bank and
had stolen a car

I was there but
it isn’t my fault

I could be wrong
I know this isn’t
the time or place

maybe it’s just me
I swear I don’t even know
he is trying to run
and not tell

Maybe you didn’t
believe me

I could tell that in time
he would swear on
gods breath

He got fifteen years
in the place

Ladies, see the trouble
in the present and RUN!
