Scenic Byways

(Some of these short poems see Creation as if through a child’s eyes. Some of them suggest a more mature view of the Creator. A few of them even reflect the long perspective of age. Most are not intended to be Scriptural, sometimes not even spiritual. Yet they may give your spirits a lift: By the middle of the week, who doesn’t need a chuckle or a changed outlook?)
  §  “Scenic byway,” said the map,
“lovely views of Long Lost Gap.”
Daddy said, “Let’s make the climb;
“after all, we’ve got the time.”
Up that winding road we sped.
Down and dizzy went my head.
   §  Scenic byways turn me green —
where’s my dose of Dramamine?
Hairpin curves and twists and turns,
while my stomach tilts and churns.
Long Lost Gap? I’ve got a hunch,
what gets lost will be my lunch.
   §  Save me from those scenic byways!
Let me ride the big wide highways!

  1. I enjoy them all, dear friend(s).

    could wish for the joy of seeing you again…but of course that is certain – since we are all going up someday. And it won’t be a dizzy trip – more of tizzy soar to heights on high. Love, Lelia
