An April Approach to Frankfurt


An April Approach to Frankfurt
by Lori Lipsky


our taxi driver

showed no fear

as the speedometer passed 150


the speed of a highway

the approach to a modern European skyline

the tidiness of a city center


hundreds and hundreds

of well-ordered yellow daffodils

paired with pansies

    • Thank you, Sue! Are the daffodils up now in VT?
      Is you hair pulled back or did you cut it shorter?
      You’re cute either way. πŸ™‚

      • Hey LL!
        Daffodils are up and blooming. Today’s the first warm day in too many… and my hair is still long, just pulled back. Thank you for the cute remark. It makes me feel young again.
        Oh, and by the way… I got your chocolates today. Too danged yummy! Thank you for that, and the card and for staying with me on this journey. Life’s good, right? Hugs!

    • 150 isn’t so bad once you do the conversion. It was a chance for this rule-follower to go over 90 mph without breaking the law. πŸ™‚

  1. 150km is pretty fast. Our top limit here is 120, but that is probably because most of the mini bus taxis are falling apart and start rattling around when they hit 60. I hope you’re enjoying your visit to Europe, Lori. Always so lovely when you post your poems

  2. I remember those highways where we Americans first experience the freedom of letting loose at speeds never tried before. Did you stop to see the daffies?

      • Thank you again for the lovely chocolates, Lori! They were much appreciated, now eaten.
        I was going to leave this on your new post, but somehow it didn’t seem right on a memorial post!
        Take care! πŸ™‚
