Double Original Friday – Hudson Valley Rest Stop in the Fall
As usual, Marcy’s words resonated, bringing back memories of the ups and downs of family vacations and those seemingly endless drives.
Hudson Valley Rest Stop in the Fall
The father reties the roof rack
while the family watches nearby.
There is an Amish boy selling syrup.
The final poem in the fall collaborative series with Ms. Kerfe Roig of Method Two Madness. I always (a tad selfishly) slip one of my own poems into the mix and hope that she doesn’t notice and illustrates it alongside the far more luminous poets we begin the series with! This short poem was born of exhaustion: a coffee break halfway through a 10 hour drive to Cleveland in the pouring rain rendered me the observer of some rest stop interactions. Kerfe captures the scene perfectly. Collage by Kerfe Roig, poem by me. Have a lovely Friday and a great fall weekend!
