    i love driving along
    pearblossom highway
    at sunset

    gliding in my
    ride toward that illusive
    ball in the western
    sky...

    is so much peace

    tiny little towns dot the
    desert landscape

    rolling through...
    there are no stop lights
    to hinder my steady flow...
    and the leaning sign posts
    speak of destinations i have
    no need to go...

    i just want to ride...
    flying low,

    with hardcastle,
    upchurch, perry ,
    and jarreau
    oozing from my stereo

    their jazz be
    permeating me
    & my private
    atmosphere
    leatherbound interior
    matching gloves, boots & skirt
    ...sounds be making me
    feel a little
    prickly heat build up
    beneath my
    shirt

    i just want to open the window
    feel the chill at dusk against
    my cheeks
    i need to tap into
    the power of my inner spirit

    i want to be open to the truth
    and recognize when i hear it

    i love to ride along pearblossom
    highway, counting
    the swells and slopes of
    brown sand dunes...

    i need the sun to touch me
    in a way i haven't felt
    for many, many moons

    I can see you, too...riding toward that illusive ball for that important soul touch.

    Well done, Poetess.

    one of the benefits of desert living

    is country roads; quiet two-lane highways that stretch into the horizon. One of the benefits of a mellow, solo drive, is the way moving steady forward clears the mental clutter, allowing the mind to open and stretch just as far.

    Thank you for taking the ride with me.
