Sarah is our today at dVerse Poets Pub. Tuesday Poetics – Food is our prompt for the day. My thought today was about our trip from CA to CONN when I was a preteen. We were on the run, so to say. It was less than an easy trip. But I learned a valuable lesson, I’ll never forget.
A lesson learned so early in my youth Three thousand mile trip across the country Two adults, two kids, lots of luggage too No stopping at hotels nor restaurants Grocery store food kept in the coolers Never got out except to use restrooms Making bologna sandwiches for lunch Another driver, worse off than we were Stopped to chat about the long cross country drive He looked hungry and weary as he spoke Mom embarrassed about our meager lunch Regretted not offering him some food I learned to be grateful for what I had
