MUSIC AND LOVE IN AN UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY

Why is this poetry? It is in the rhythm of the words,
               describing a moment of intimacy and fluid beauty,
a moment making love, not just to each other but to the
earth around us – so much so that the communion of love
also embraces the trees and the waters of the bay, the flight
of birds, the shadows and silence of the day.

22b76-dsc_0223_1              I wrote this song when we drove into Mexico one time… Didn’t see many road signs… saw a bar, a  Hotel called simply, CANTINA””THE CRYSTAL MOON SALOON”… We went past that place to a small white hotel by the sea. The  white hotel looked a bit lonely

sitting up on that hill. White white, white against the blue of the sky and the sea.

          We drove in closer, motored in to the other side of the hotel and then we heard the music, sweet Spanish music played downstairs in the cantina.

Pete drove father around the place and up high on the white wall

there was a gorgeous almost angelic blue neon sign. The sign

said:  “CRYSTAL MOON SALOON,”

That settled the matter then and there. We were staying.

       Then the song takes over… Vocals by Bill Milne, lyrical lead guitar by Peter Rowland. This is one of my favorite songs, period! Even if I did write it… I love Peter’s playing on this one. (C) 1996-2016 by W.G.Milne. Peter Rowland did most of the musical production.

        The song is called, “IN THIS HOTEL.”

Until I learn how to download it here, you can find the song on the William Milne profile at Google +.

Or in Walker Ballantine’s VIDEOS on Facebook.

Or on the William Milne Channel on You Tube.
