i went to the truck stop

just off of interstate 90

in harborcreek pa.

i walked in like a vagrant –

single life will do that.

i went and sat up

at the truckers counter –

kinda like fitting in

away from family oriented spots.

ordered an orange juice,

omlette with toast,

and a short stack of pancakes.

after a short time …

i sat there eating,

and thought about the leaves

i had gathered in many large contractors bags

in a steady rain

brought about by the effects of the hurricane

a few hours earlier.

if this appears gloomy,

don’t tell anyone.

    • it didn’t take much to write this piece. when i go to eat and i’m by myself i never go to the family type places. but with gathering leaves in the steady rain – i thought here is my next piece. i’m glad my secret is safe with you and that you liked this one !!
