Boyfriend (Lissie)

Stumbled across this track this morning on Tidal and feel it applies to how I see women now. Goes both ways. Could be titled Girlfriend and changed up. Might try it.

I prefer the river
The ocean is too big a body to understand
Go to where it narrows
Bring your bow and arrow
Meet me out on the land

Sivananda Yoga Ashram, Grass Valley, CA 2016.

White water flowing on the rocks in the sunshine
Drinking red wine in the summertime
Night swimming, skinny dipping, love in the moonlight
And it’s all mine

Hidden Beach at Cedar Lake, Minneapolis, 2016.

I don’t want a boyfriend
I don’t want a house built on the sand
I don’t want a lover
I want a man
A coming-from-the-heart man
Living in my heartland
Coming-from-the-heart man

Tom Swift Bird night photography Black Hills, SD.

Underneath the covers of treetops and each other
Awoken by a gentle breeze
Are we here in silence
The birds and smells of lilacs
Going out from a city

Streets of Berkeley, CA, living homeless.

Bird calling, water falling, dreams in the sunshine
Drinking red wine in the summertime
Sun tan and Steely Dan and sounds on the radio
And it’s all mine

Minneapolis Baha’i Center Youth Garden 2015.

I don’t want a boyfriend
I don’t want a house built on the sand
I don’t want a lover
I want a man
A coming-from-the-heart man
Living in my heartland
Coming-from-the-heart man

Image from “Slaughterhouse-Five” (1972).

Sweet like honey dripping, oh touch and taste
Lights my fire burning all night and day
Your soul so stunning
Taking my breath away
My desire reaching out for the flame

I don’t want a boyfriend
I don’t want a house built on the sand
I don’t want a lover
I want a man
A coming-from-the-heart man
Living in my heartland
Coming-from-the-heart man
I want a man
(I want a man)
In my heartland
Coming-from-the-heart man
Living in my heartland
