Into the Country

on the way back roads

It was
a perfect day
for cruising
on open roads,
for watching
the cows
watch us
as we paused
for a moment
to warm our faces
from the sun’s
late entrance,
and to relish
in life’s
simple joys

    • I’m glad you like the looks of this, too, Alison. Going for these drives is something we do often, and I’m glad you have a similar area to enjoy the same. Thanks for the poem compliment, also, and enjoy your weekend! 🌻

  1. Lovely and peaceful photo. I love your line ‘ and the cows watching us’.
    Don’t they just. Keep emnjoying your calm meandering among the hills
    and the curious cows. Sounds like the moors up North.

    • Thanks, Betty. It’s a repeat, but I’m glad you enjoyed it again. The weekend’s been relaxing and productive, all in one. Tonight, we’re celebrating Steph’s birthday. Time flies! 🙂 Hope you’re having a great day, too! Hugs! ❤🌼📚🦆🐛
