The Drive

We talked about nothing

But it sure felt like something

The windows were all down

The car sped out of town

In the country, sunshine everywhere

Music and her smile filled the air

In my mind I heard her hearty laugh

Her nimble head stretched like a giraffe

I felt her nose move along my cheek

For a moment I forgot how to speak

At the turnoff we pulled off the road

The hummingbirds danced in code

Unaware, my stress dissolved away

So many words I wanted to say

I couldn’t help but drink from her eyes

What I saw was kind and profoundly wise

Heartily she shared her deepest views

She knew more than the evening news
