car therapy

photo from flickr

even though it was raining
and the air was thick with summer
i drove home with my windows down
beach sand still on my toes
the scenery racing by
all under a fading pink sky
listening to retro 80's music
smelling the wet grassy fields
feeling the rush of the wind on my face
and feeling filled to the brim with life
a smile at the corner of my mouth
a tear of relief at the corner of my eye
after a long and unsettled week
i felt new and old at the same time
right in the center
of everything big and small
