A Poem for SW Virginia

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Words and roads and memories

Dappled sunlight through the trees

Pushing power through my knees

Twisting, turning like a breeze

 

Riding through fresh mountain air

A friendly wave, an angry stare

The family grave and disrepair

Wind rushing through my hair

 

Breathing deeply, out and in

Gleaming sweat and sun soaked skin

It’s hard to tell how long it’s been

The more I think the more I grin

 

Words and roads and memories

Dappled sunlight under a tree

While darkness brings sleep to me

It feels good to be free.

 

But this is what sucks,

Semi haulin’ shmucks

And smelly pick-up trucks.

  1. Your long-awaited journey has irrevocably arrived,
    Nearly all that is worldly, you have left behind,

    Off on your expansive trip, as you seek to strive,
    A deeper understanding, within the depths of your mind,

    Unearthing the boundless freedom you derive.
