‘Door to Avalon’


What’ll we do when it’s over and done with?
What’ll we do when we unlock the door?
What’ll we do when we crawl out of the subway?
What’ll we do if it’s not like before?

What’ll we see in the City of Heartbeats?
What’ll we see in the waves and the tide?
What’ll we see in the fields of the living?
What’ll we see with our eyes open wide?

What’ll we make of shadows as dancers?
What’ll we make of blue skies and the stars?
What’ll we make of faces uncovered?
And what’ll we make of reborn guitars?

The answer lives in that City of Heartbeats
The place where we will hold hands once more
The answer is found when she rests her head on your shoulder
No need to worry about what went before

Here’s my song, ‘Rebirth’, a song that fits these words. I hope you enjoy;

  1. JGC, ‘City of Heartbeats’ has the aesthetics of a classic film noir. I adore the last stanza/verse, the answer we’ve all been waiting for. There are indeed cities of heartbeats all over the world, brilliant. Amazing photo, ‘Door to Avalon’, not sure which is more magical, the actual door or the little painting of the butterfly, so much detail in both. Excalibur is surely needed now, as is a rebirth, perfect song for the times. Have a good rest of the week. ~ PM

    1. Thanks, PM. I took that photo a year ago and for some reason I never used. Perhaps it was waiting for the virus? The scene for the pic, a back alleyway where the drugged vagrants hang out. You enjoy your week as well ~ JGC

    1. Thanks for reading. With all the talk about corona I thought the corona virus end game was worth writing about. I might get a song out of this – with luck. Thanks again ~ Zoolon aka George
