GOLDEN AVENUES

GOLDEN AVENUES

Driving home this afternoon,

My “baby” in the car…

Sunlit wonder all around

From a burning orange star,

Trees ablaze in glory

Shielded those trees bare…

Formed a perfect backdrop

For sunlight-scented air!

But I had to hurry

Against the blinding sun…

Didn’t due to worry,

I had to make that run

To get her home and safe…

Would I get to work on time–

I had to keep faith!

Golden avenues along which

We traveled by car…

Lit with welcome light

From a friendly star;

Got the Missus home again

And then off I flew…

Arrived only an hour late–

WHEW!!!!

REAR GUARD ACTION

REAR GUARD ACTION

On the way home traffic was slow,

For what reason I didn’t know…

A loaded R.V.

With trailer was the,

Reson for brake light glow!

I don’t travel fast at night,

To me it seemed right…

To become its rear guard

So drivers untoward,

With me could flash their lights.

Most everyone went round,

No angry horns did sound…

Two lanes in each way

Saved the day,

When the R.V. down-hill slowed down!

My exit came up for my nest,

The R.V. driver I blessed…

I prayed that they

Safely made their way

To where they’d be stopping next!
