Writer Highlight Featuring: Charlene Elson-Gustard

Man and woman in car

Joy Ride

Completely abandoned
to the awe of adventure,
the promise of pleasure
propels them to dive
headlong into time.
An eager exploration
of youth venturing
recklessly, happily,
into territories unknown.
Bravely crossing borders
heavily guarded
by experience’s wisdom,
that surrenders surprisingly
to the heat of the moment.
The destination undetermined.
The course uncharted,
as caution and care are overrun
by the crescendo of feelings
dominating the controls.
Focus is not the wheel
as the machine of madness
smashes every speed bump,
careening into the chaos
of exhilarating excitement
and slows to satisfied smiles.
