Recuerde Esto



Tea leaves,

Tangled sheets...


You mustn't believe a word they say.


So you've poured your entire self into a passion again,

Right to the top...


As if you were something sparkling, and you are.


Just because the music ends,

Doesn't mean you shouldn't have danced.


Broken hearts and full ones

Both express themselves with tears,

And there's no shame in that;

No crime in taking a chance.


One day, maybe soon,

When the house lights dim and the red light's on,

You'll roll a hat down your arm and steal everybody's heart

Just as if you'd never let one fall;


Just as if you were something sparkling,

And you are.

That's just a marvelous image.

Bravo, Shay, and Stevie Nicks in that hat is just perfect for this one, m'ija!

You just broke up with Stevie Nicks?

I like the idea that tangled sheets would tell a fortune, as unreliably as tea leaves. That would make the good beginning to a novel, don't you think?

K said...

Love it. It's hard, but the risk is worth it.

I'm running out to buy the boxed CD set now! I don't want to ever forget how much her music has influenced me over the years.

Kay said...

P.S. the answer to the art work is Riley Rican; generally if you click on the photo you should be able to get the name of the artist, none are my own :)

I think tangled sheets are one of my most favorite thing of all time.

Warm toes under them? Even better...

Just because the music ends,
Doesn't mean you shouldn't have danced.

I love this and the nostalgic feeling it gives me.
