A feeling of aliveness
City lights glare
Wide as high as near as far
An array of color floods into my eyes
light shows at the
appears just above the billboards
the universe of stars is barely visible
through the dazzling display of nightlights
on the freeway wall
MMM, the taste of dust on my tongue
just as the roar of the hot red car
speeding by drowns out my thoughts
gives me chills under my warm coat.
the car purrs along
while my thoughts return to you
makes my skin melt like butter.
Rain drops like silver glisten –
A red maple leaf spins with the wind and hits my windshield
I drive mesmerized and hypnotized
by the silver pools of water splashing up
from the pavement while the windshield wipers
keeps time to the raindrops rhythmic beat.
Cars passing on by pay no attention
to the fate of the red maple leaf
cut loose by the wind tossing and tumbling and rolling
along side my car trying hard to keep up
a train whistle’s shrill voice quivers in the night air
Car engine whirling sounds like
.. my true love gave to me...
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pearrrr..
smell of pine scented smoke and
car exhaust mingle in the cold night air.
Home at Last!
a bit of holiday sparkle --- you are waiting there!
