Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Writing 101 – Haiku – Farewell Old Friend

on September 29, 2015

Trusty old gray car
Polka-dotted with rust spots
And still running fine.

Sad to say goodbye
My treasure of memories
Spans nineteen rich years.

I also show my age
Gray-haired now with slowing gait
We’re two of a kind.

    It is sad to see it go. I gave mine to the Make A Wish Foundation. Glad it would go to a good home.

    Nice feel to this, and how wonderful that you’d give it to a charitable foundation! Having been a non-driver all my life, I don’t have that experience of owning a vehicle which becomes more than just transportation, holding memories/emotions of the life it shared.

  6. Love, love, love this one! I have a weird affection for vehicles-it’s as if they have a life & character of their own. But… I agree walking is better for us and there is too much pollution. Here’s a fond farewell to the ol’ gal. 🙂

    Perfect. Recently left behind my trusted truck of 19 years.
