Sentimental Journey

When I was 21 
the bus didn't stop in West Virginia, 
such a small state 
and the Maryland panhandle only minutes away. 

I would settle in for another few hours 
completely saturated with resting. 
The slight early morning gray 
was like dust.

Going home; but not home, 
a visit with my parents. 
They would greet me and
I would be grateful.

Now, from the high standpoint of age, 
as if I look back from a high peak 
with thin clouds drifting under me, 
I realize that today 

is the time for play. 
I pull out my toys 
like I did when I sat 
sprawled on my parents' carpet.
