Musical montage ==> Texas Skies

Elizabeth Stelling
Inspiration piece

Tiny white clouds dot big blue Texas skies like mesquite and tumbleweeds
blowing along old highways- taking shape, like a woman

catching a glance from a tall and lanky cowboy
who smiles and tips his hat leading to conversation

laced with flirtation and a nudge become an encounter
a beer down at the local bar; maybe a scoot

across the saw dust dance floor, where he pulls her in close
giving off a hint he wants more, as his face leans into hers

loneliness, maybe love brings on a lingering kiss, something
either may or may not were looking for at the night’s end

morning light exposes a scene of rustled blankets, musty
bed sheets, an empty room over time filled with vast memories

like the big life under blue Texas skies, dotted with pretty
white clouds that can take on shapes, reminding us of so many things.
