Time Out!

I would like to thank all of my loyal readers.  I enjoy your blogs and look forward to that quiet time to indulgence myself in reading and writing.

Unfortunately, my cup is running over with things I need to do, with deadlines, stress, and bronchitis with little rest.

I will be reading a lot more than writing for a few days.  The only way I know to find out bout the prompts I love to write for is when I get them in my email box, so please don’t forget me.  I may surprise myself and get caught up sooner than expected.

Thanks so much for your loyalty and inspiration! beebeesworld

Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

I’d been in California with him too long.
Tired of the lies, drugs, pain.
I sat at the overlook in San Bernadino,
thinking of the Appalachians,
soft, damp breezes, hardwood forests,-
He was asleep-passed out
when I got back to the cabin.
Good, I thought,no hard goodbyes.
I packed the few things I cared about,
started the engine of my old van
and watched the dust behind me.
Homeward bound.
Was that a song, a book?
Didn’t matter-the sun was to my back,
pushing me eastward-
to peace, to healing, to welcoming arms.
All I had to do was stay on I-40
until I could breathe again.
