Poetry – Day 17


Good food, good music

It’s an easy day

Letting the smooth melodies thread themselves through my heart strings

Mentally cruising down my own private winding road

Imagining myself driving a convertible with the top down

Feeling the wind blowing through my hair

The sun coating my skin with its warmth

The music taking me exactly where I need to be

Nothing but smiles all around

My thoughts interrupted by the sound of my name being called

As I approach the colorful truck in front of me

A paper boat with oowee gooey deliciousness is placed in the palm of my hand

My nostrils are filled with the smells of grilled bread and a variety of cheeses melded together to create happiness on earth

As I take the first bite, knowing that this golden delight is way too hot

I take the bite anyway pulling the cheese between my teeth blowing air at the same time

This is my attempt to cool this tiny morsel off

At this moment my tongue actually tastes everything that is good about the world

My eyes close and I am teleported back to my childhood

Instantly I smile

I wish I could put this feeling in my pocket and hold it there forever
