Its good when you have a foot on the pedal

On Easy.Street is a great place to be

Every sunbeam lands on your face

Raindrops are tears from Heaven

And my heart slides into cruise control

As Californian sun slants over the bluff


Everything is going my way

No problems I envisage

As contentment beats through my veins

Joshua trees dot the terrain

And a snake slithers lazily into view

Knowing this moment

Is the fraction of a recurring dream


Way cool is the feeling inside

As I sip delicious blackcurrant juice

Wiping my brow in the midday sun

I travel with the greatest of ease

Shimmering horizon of the  Mohave desert

I know I am in full control

For all flows in divine rhythm

When you step out  in harmony

A happy carefree poem that lifts ones spirits.

Oh! how I love the Mojave. It is stark and breathtaking and on a clear evening as you lay back and marvel at all those stars and shooting stars, you feel as though you are one with the universe and that you could reach out your hand and touch the moon. Daytime there is fun if it is not in the heat of summer. You can often get your own private air show as the men and women from Edwards AFB train in all those cool fighter jets at low elevations for you. Great write, Peter.
Take care,
