Iambe stretched out
Lying under the front end
Of Jimís old International
Trying to loosen the bolts
Holding the steering gear to the frame.

It had been months since I had seen her
Thousands of miles and hundreds of days
Since I had loaded the old truck and left


She stopped and crawled out
As the old pickup coughed on last gasp
And crunched gravel under tires in a stop

Her eyes had no Idea what I saw
And what I had seen
Still, they peered at me
Looking for a reason for my return

I just nodded
Walked over to the shade
And found a place to sit
My back to rough bark
And she
Smiled

A warm welcome from a very intriguing character. I love it already! I look forward to more as you made me there under the shade tree looking on.

I like what you didn't say, here.

Thereby, saying it all.

I miss Iambe.

I miss the stories.  

'bout time some of the newbies read Iambe's story.
