Arriving at the Kona airport
we pick up our baggage and head
to Hertz to rent a car. Walking out
to the parking lot, we come to
a sleeking looking black
Ford Mustang convertible. Is this
the vehicle for a conservative
pastor and his wife?
Well, why not? We’re on vacation.
Let’s pretend we’re young again,
roll down the top and drive
with the wind blowing at our faces
and messing up our hair.
Let’s remember the 24 year old
young man and the 20 year old young
lady who began an incredible ,
blessed journey 25 years ago that
has lead us to this
Happy Anniversary, Darling!
Only A Woman
Driving through the national park
in a black Ford Mustang convertible,
we come across acres and acres of
an old pahoehoe lava flow. It appears
grayish and chocolate brown
with interspersed cracks and reminds me
of something. “Doesn’t that look like
miles and miles of brownies?”
I ask my husband. Smiling, he
replies that only a woman
would make that comment.
