Alone

I dedicate "Alone" with profound gratitude to Aldous Huxley

Once I danced around your fire
And sang my warrior's song
Not a song of war
Or mighty deeds of valor
A song of joy filled with abandon
That echoed through the forest
Until the mists made it their own
Once I danced around your fire . . .
Not knowing that I danced alone

Blake Xolton was born in Los Angles, CA. He grew up in the proverbial brier patch;  

Hollywood, city of dreams. After three decades or Rock and Roll, the gray hue of     

morning's light no longer spoke of days to come, but rather of nights past. Answering
the call to find a place where the stars are not cast in concrete, Blake, along with wife  

and three children, now resides in the Pacific North West.
