Harbor Lights: This song is a musing about people who have come and gone in my life; people who will always be a part of my “song”. Harbor Lights Restaurant on Commencement Bay remains constant. Only the characters change.
"ODE TO HARBOR LIGHTS"
Happy hour is playing on
Voices drone like train wrecked songs
With a cabernet in hand
I view this bar scene a circus grand
On my bar stool I sit and ponder
Faces I’ve known here in this harbor
Some still here – some are gone
Like distant melodies to my song
One thing here is a constant
Harbor Lights Bar And Restaurant
If you come to this fine place
One drink will surely slow your pace
Raconteurs you’re longing for
Sit where you left them the night before
So many stories are being told
Outrageous, sad or comical
The clouds now are passing by
Floating impressions in the sky
On the water is scribbled light
Like Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”
I look out at the promenade
Sidewalk lights are now turned on
Joggers, walkers pass on by
Beneath the clouds of a starless sky
