Road Trip Rain

We drove into the rain last night
followed skies lit by lightning strikes distant miles away.
We were sprayed by rain raised from the lanes of giant trucks
with bright red and yellow tail light eyes
that streaked across our faces in time with our windshield’s electric rhythm and beat.
And we reminisced of other stormy nights
and recalled long forgotten birthdays and road trips
that may have also been our best of better days.


  1. It’s funny how that works sometimes.

  3. I love this! Vivid wordpic poem, DSS!

    Often during the dark-and-stormy the memories flow down…our hearts are brave, our tongues unlocked.

    Oh! Good days are still ahead, too…for you 2 to make more good memories! 🙂

    Absolutely wonderful poem – full of images. I’m not crazy about driving in rain though it can certainly have a poetic quality. Peace to you
