miller road






Remember the day we got lost 'cause neither of us kept track?
The gravel met pavement and we were losing sun.
I felt the rumbling of a panic but you kept calm.
We found our way back yet it wasn't without help.
There was an old man in his yard, three dogs at his feet.
He told us to turn left at the stop, drive about a mile.
There was to be a barn to our right, a large oak on the left.
Turn there, he said, that'll take you home.




Today I am most grateful and constantly amazed by the kindness of those we call strangers.
