Slice of Life 2019: Day 30

Up at 7:10

A cup of green tea gets the blood flowing.

A few chores to complete around the house.

I wake my fellow traveler.

The dog stays at home.

Newspaper stopped.

A snack bag goes in the back.

Skim board and ENO are stuffed last minute.

The traffic funnels through the city.

A million travelers join us southward.

Bikes and luggage adorn people’s cars.

My traveler reads

While I listen to happy songs.

A road sign says Florida.

I finger my favorite station on the dial.

A neighbor knows we’ll arrive in one hour.

My traveler has an urgent need

To relieve the bladder.

We find a secluded clump of shrubs.

The Suburban hugs the driveway.

My mother emerges with a smile.

Hugs and smiles and luggage dropped.

I walk out to the dock and breathe.

We are home.
