Thoughts while traveling on Iowa highway.


My sun calls me back to a better time
When freedom from pain was mine
To allow my weary heart to rest
So evening might see my best


Most recall childhood
When getting home for lunch would
Be the greatest care
To rest on shoulders bare
 

I recall days of yore
When freedom from pain allowed more
The sun warms me the same as before

The ending gave me reminders of hot day, going to my vehicle just to sit on the hot leather to alleviate my back pain.

Chronic pain can be harsh, but the strength to continue can be uplifting. I really find Steve Irwin to be that sort of person. Your poem is very beautiful.

Nostalgic write R, you are putting enough of these together to fill a poetry chapbook, you should consider it someday!

A nice reminiscence, Rosemarie. We are lucky to have the sun and the highway as companions as we travel down life's road.
