Lovers and Dreamers

by Juliana Perry

Is it the wine talking or perhaps the late hour? Probably more like a combination of the two, as well as the mud wrap followed by the gluttonous feast. Sitting on the ground in your dressing room and leaning my head back onto the couch, my wine forgotten on the makeup table; those green tinted hands with strong fingers flex in my tangled hair and tug enough to extend my chubby neck. My mind wanders and I am transplanted to another place we've both been before, the theater two nights ago, critics in the wing and those damn chickens. I gaze up into your deep liquid eyes and hold tight to the memory of how you handled the crowd, protected my honor so that the show could go on. Ever so quietly you begin to sing our song close to my ear, as I feel your tongue tickle my ear, the words someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers, and me.

I was wondering about those "green tinted hands" until the last line. I just went to Rhapsody and listened to the Willie Nelson rendition. Very clever Juliana!

A great ending I didn't see coming, either. It's time to start the music..lol. Great six from a talented Sixer! Look forward to your next, as Adam said.

I must've been with Fozzy and turned at the fork in the road when this one came out ... The green tinted hands had me and the chubby neck shoulda let me know ... but Oh Juliana ... when the song came on ... oh yeah. Lovely, lovely this was. ~ Absolutely*Kate, surely a MuppetWatcher and FraggleRocker
