Dancing With Ghosts

.
.
Where is this place, so bitter cold, cold,
So burning hot, hot, this salty wasteland of empty, empty?
Where the greatest joy is found dancing with ghosts,
Dancing with ghosts, dancing with ghosts, wind, ghosts, ghosts…
Aiiiii
Exiled to this nowhere of wailing free winds,
Questing winds, ghosts, wind, wind asking for new words,
Singing the same ancient song, always the same, not new,
Not new, not new, not new, lowing not new, not new, not new …
Aiiiii
Oh home, I want to go home, to the welcome,
The love, the comfort, the harmony, to Mama, Mama,
I want to go home to the home, the home that cannot be,
Never was, never was, never come with me, come with me, with me…
Aiiiii
Where is this place, so bitter cold,
So burning hot, this salty wasteland of empty?
Where the greatest joy is found dancing with wind,
Dancing with ghosts, dancing with ghosts, with ghosts, with wind, alone…
Aiiiii
Oh joy! Oh happy! Dancing not new, not new, not new,
Dancing not new, dancing, dancing, flying with ghosts,
Blown on the salt watered free to a never was, never will be,
The empty never, only wind, wind, happy wild dancing, flying, dancing…
Aiiiii

  1. Wonderful!
    Sounds eerie. I am imagining the dark place, so cold.
    Every thing is cold
    Dance to the music also looks cold
    What is it?

    • “Dance to the music also looks cold
      What is it?”

      I’m sorry, but I lost the meaning with these two sentences. ???

        • Ooops. Lost in translation. the word “music” is not in the poem, at all, nor is “looks cold what is it?” Google translate is Ok, but it does make some funny mistakes sometimes. 🙂

          Have you ever traveled to anywhere cold? Your imagination might be worse than reality. That is, if you are prepared with appropriate clothing, etc. 🙂

          • Yes, I used to climb the mountain top which has cold weather. Once I was in Saudi Arabia during cold weather. You are absolutely right, There is no bad weather but bad clothing! 🙂

          • A climber or hiker? Glaciers? Which mountain(s)?
            Saudi Arabia? Pilgrimage? Business? Tourist?

            Nope, not absolutely right. Add very strong WIND and water in any form, or no water at all and sand, and there can be bad weather that is too bad for even the best protective clothing. I spoke (wrote) to quickly.
