TELLING WHERE HE WAS GOING

Mike arose early today,

for a meet of A.A….*

To describe

Destination took time,

I needed pointing the right way!

Villages in that town,

Literally surround…

All sorts of names

While the mills have changed—

Some have been knocked down!

He forgot the exact name,

And so we played the game…

Known landmarks

Encompassing arcs,

Not always thinking the same.

Then he “came in” another way,

And light flooded in–HOORAY!

It was good–

His meet in Linwood–

To which he drove away!

INTO THE FOG

INTO THE FOG IN STEALTH MODE

A real “pea-souper” I drove through today,
Fog…like condensed New England-style chowder…
Avoiding potatoes that got in the way
Could have been easier if their lights had “shouted” louder!
