weekend drive

halloween: chain(blog only)

we took a ride
in the country
for halloween.
i had the urge
to go
apple-picking
or
to visit
a pumpkin patch.

we did neither.

we packed some
sandwiches
from taylor
and stopped
by a winery
to eat them
near a pond
and
a big maple tree.

we took roads
that looked
interesting.

we saw
fields of cows,

strange bags
that hung
from trees,

an old
railroad crossing,

and
a farmers co-op.

we ended up
at
inn at little washington
because
we were curious.
we shared
a glass of french wine
that smelled
like petrol.

when we left
the restaurant
it was dark
and
the streets
had filled with
children
dressed
and excited
for candy.

made me
wish i was
a kid again-
headed out
with my pillowcase
in my pippi longstocking
costume.
ready to fill my bag
with candy
that was sure
to make me ill.

a perfect
halloween.

goodbye october.

I'm pretty sure that bag is a salt lick for the livestock. Our neighbors down the road have one, hung low so the little calves can get at it.

Just going for a drive is the single reason I miss having a car.

Thanks for taking me on yours.
