Drive to the Diner

IMG_5524

Poles, wires, trucks, tires
Over potholes to the diner-
the trip couldn’t be finer.

Waitress knew me and
asked if my daughter would
be joining me. Not today.

Coffee, orange juice and water –
oatmeal, eggs, toast,
a side of bacon. She knew the order.

Talk of family trees in
booth next to me with
reunion at a state park

Branches of family tree,
cousins never before seen,
aunts and uncles too.

They ordered a Cunningham
sandwich on toasted sourdough
with turkey, ham and dressing.

Sign out the window read
Dollar Tree, WT Brews, AT & T
Whoa! It’s April snow!

Well, folks, a joke?
It’s April tenth – enough of
the white stuff.

Travel home wishing Old
Man Winter would go away
and let us have flowers, a sunny day.

    Bonjour ou bonsoir mon amie MARYANNE bon appétit

    Je viens te faire le cadeau des plus précieux

    Celui du temps

    De rêver à de nouvelles idées

    De réfléchir aux anciennes

    Peu importe le temps que nous passons ensemble sur nos blogs

    Tu découvriras toujours de nouvelles dimensions

    Au travers du miroir et de ce lien celui de notre l’amitié

    L’amitié c’est aimer pour ce qu’elle est moi je le pense

    Non pour ce qu’elle fait

    En se sentant aimé

    On est capable de grandes choses, de s’accrocher , de réussir

    Belle journée ou soirée et belle semaine

    Bisous Bernard

    • Cher Bernard,
      Merci encore pour vos gentils mots. Les blogueurs et les écrivains en général semblent se connecter avec d’autres dans le monde entier. Nous remplissons nos histoires et notre poésie avec des souvenirs d’expériences. C’est notre humanité partagée je crois. Merci d’avoir écrit de si jolis commentaires. Le temps est un grand cadeau à donner aux autres. Mary Ann

    Our winters in South Africa are not as cold as yours. We do not have snow. Our flowers still bloom but when Spring comes, the excitement is almost palpable.

  6. Hello Dr. Mary Ann, i have to apologize for the long delay in answering. I hope you will accept my apologize, and hope you had a wonderful weekend with the choir. My thoughts were with you.
    You’ve really got snow again? Looks like NY Upstate is much more siberian this year. LOL
    I wish you all the best! Michael
