Smiling on the drive home…

High on the scent of summer

Giddy with going away

Collecting my paints and art supplies

Saving new books for rainy days.

Driving too fast down a two-lane road

Lightning intensifying the drive

Bright green lawns have been mowed

The corn and beans grow high in the field.

I feel like I’m sixteen again

Newly licensed and ready to fly

Yet I don’t forget where I’ve been

But I feel like it’s going to be alright.
