A Day Away…


A Day Away…


Coffee firmly gripped

I fly past all the shops

Eager for a day of freedom

Wondering where I should stop


I see a faint glimpse

Of my favorite bike store

I just cannot resist

The urge to explore


Once thoroughly enticed

With all I would love to buy

I wave my hand high in the air

And leave with a deep sigh


The day is not yet over

Still so much left to do

So I pedal over the steep hills

Just enjoying the view


Eventually I’m led

To a beautiful quiet place

Where I sit and I think

About life and God’s grace


I pull out my journal

And my ever trusted pen

I begin to write my heart out

On the pages within


I’ll treasure this day forever

Wish this memory didn’t have to end

Yet tomorrows a new day

Another adventure to begin

  7. You wouldn’t happen to live in the Northeast US would you? I do and that’s just the weather we had last week too!! Or Philly, they had snow too.
