Road trip


Meeting at the Holiday Inn for coffee first

Grabbing slickers and our oldest shoes

And some of those fancy water bottles

There’s a chance of rain where we’re going.


Warm and dry inside for our passengers

Wipers swiping and leaves clinging

Tires singing and slinging the water away

The town car is floating but we’re going.


Tightening laces and grabbing for cameras

Tucking Kleenex in our pockets for later

Checking the sky for signs of drying

And we will see where we're going.


Later inside the car, our hands rubbing vigorously

Against fabric of wet jeans and slick vests

Shoes squeaking and we are stripping off wet socks

There’s a warm fire and good wine where we’re going.

Amy, well done. I got those same feelings every Sunday when I was a child and Dad use to take us on what he called, " Mystery Rides. " We never knew where we were going but we were never disappointed with the results.

Interesting journey; enjoyed the ride, Amy.
