Carnets de Voyages
In my new red country dress,
I strolled the streets of Glenwood Springs.
A woman stopped me to say
I looked stunning.
I took a photograph of an old typewriter
through an antique’s shop window.
On the pages of my travel
notebook, I lay down
my melancholy, my little girl
memories, when we took
that road trip, the summer
I was five.
The Great Sioux Chief smiled
at me, held my hand;
we shared the wisdom
deep in his eyes.
Forty years later, we gaze,
my three children and I,
into the abyss of the Colorado;
we lose ourselves in the Delicate Arch.
The snapshots pepper my dreams.
They morph into stories on the page,
the tip of my fountain pen
chases down the plot.
Thank you for visiting. Heat wave commencing in Toulouse France.
