HEADING HOME

photo "manufactured" by PSC 


Heading Home

 

Half past six, we’re tooling

down the highway in our toasty car

through single digit temps;

red and white lights slicing

charcoal inky darkness. 

Your hands on the wheel,

my mind meandering.

 

Over my right shoulder,

Orion keeps company

with a waxing gibbous moon,

while, through the speakers,

a favorite troubadour tries to tell us,

“… anywhere’s a better place to be”;

but, tonight

(you, me, heading home)

 I have to disagree.

  1. Pamela, this is so heartfelt!
    Harry was one of my favourites when I was in university, got to see him a couple of times when he came to campus.
    Like how he finished with "All my life's a circle". Great link to share--that album cover is still sitting on a shelf here.
    Did you ever here the tribute album with Springsteen and others? It is great, especially the words from the Boss!
    Have a great day!:)
