Ferry Ride

Peaks Island Maine, August 2007

Front row, top deck,

Wind blazing, I sit.

Looking out over the horizon,

I see peace, fun and happiness.

No problems and sleeping in late.

I see air speeding by us on our bikes.

There’s no need for a high gear.

What I don’t see is leaving.

Although I haven’t yet arrived, I have plans for everything.

But what I look forward to most is being with my family.

I cant wait for the new and great experiences.

My ferry stops, and off I go.
