Road Trip

The back of the car was filled with games and DVDs and snacks and drinks. The front had a big cup of coffee ready and plenty of road trip music. But we had such a good time looking at the scenery, counting cows and antelope, singing songs, and making up shapes in the clouds that we didn’t need anything but the open road and ourselves.

  1. Time for morning start would be decided at dinner . Bags were packed , clothes decided . Who’s going to eat what at breakfast , and then I think all of us went to sleep , dreaming of open roads and spaces , clouds above us and the road below .
    Road trip . Crisp morning air and the superlative sight of an orangey sun poking its head out of the grey horizon . A heady journey has started .

  2. Go

    Sometimes we just need to go,
    pack what’s needed,
    and go. Where

    Doesn’t matter. It’s the going
    that means something,
    Go

    Somewhere new, somewhere
    we’ve been before,
    somehere we’ve never been
    dark interior of our self,
    strange footprints
    lead us to the path,
    the place,
    peace.
