Fresh Bathed and Oiled

Fresh Bathed and Oiled

The steamy water made a mist as?
it rose against the mirror.?
Soon I couldn’t see her eyes…?
but I knew they were there…?watching
–?they were always watching back then.
?Drops of sweat formed in my hair
?as I felt the warmth of her kindness?
envelope my senses.?The steamy hot bath closed in tight?
against my bright red skin.

Love was clean back then,?fresh bathed and oiled.?

Soft and supple like the petals of a rose?
that’s graciously surrendered its tenderness?
to the warm spring air?
knowing when it does it must?
start the drying
–?the dying
–?the knowing.
?The rose was gracious back then.

She used to look at my toes
–?she did that when she was sexy…?
me, I looked at the woman
–?the woman made me sexy.?
I am still sexy for the woman…?
She looked at my toes back then
–?she hasn’t been sexy for years
–?perhaps my toes know why.?I do not.
But maybe I knew back then.

Her eyes appeared?over the rim of my spectacles,?
just to tell me it was over.
?Over while I still lived in the haunted house
where two strangers?
shared torn sheets draped?
over a withered love?
that was parched from the drought.
Ah, but once it rained,?
it rained in torrents
–?it rained in floods
–?it even bloomed back then.

?Once there was a love so vivid and gay?
that neighbors would complain;?
too noisy for them they said,
?but now even the neighbors know?
the love is dead.
We danced
–?I know we danced because?
there is still a rhythm in my head
–?it goes like this:
kick-a-do?
kick-a-boom?
kick-a-bang-bang-boom?
it goes on forever
?so I know we danced…?
but that was back then?
when she looked at my toes
Back then
When we were sexy
Fresh bathed and oiled

Love

When I wrote this I stumbled onto the line: “Love, it’s a great point of view!.” I knew I would love this song! This is one of my favorites.

Love & Light,

This song was inspired by really good friends of mine that live in San Diego, the Augustines: Skip, Caroline and Sarah. While staying with them over the New Year of 2009 I witnessed love so authentic and pure I was moved to realize that that is tne answer here on planet earth…

“Love is the energy life wind and soul… its the reason this planet will never let go!”

I wrote this after dancing tango at the all night milonga in San Diego Jan. 2009: “Love is the energy life wind and soul, it’s the reason this planet will never let go…” This songs is a blast to play.

Love & Light,
Rusty
P.S. Thanks to Sarah, Skip and Caroline for the inspiration

Whisper

I’d like to say what I want to tell you

Before you can see what you hear

I want you to know how to speak from your heart

How to say what you want them to hear

I’ve heard that they’ll hear what you say if you’ll say

What you said as you spoke with a whisper

And I’ve heard it said if you’ll say what you say

And what you said was spoke in scripture

Chorus:
They might even know what you mean

And they might even see what you’ve seen

And if they see in you, what I see in you

All you will need is a whisper

All you will need is a whisper

Now if you’ll tell them what you’re going to tell them

Before you have said what you say

And then tell them exactly what you want to tell them

You’ll can be sure that they won’t turn away

Chorus:
They might even know what you mean

And they might even see what you’ve seen

And if they see in you, what I see in you

All you will need is a whisper

Anyone that has looked inside and tried to expres sthemselves knows what this song is about…
Say it with a whisper!!
