One of Maya’s most favorite things is to go for a ride in the car (along with many other things that are her most favorite).

Go for a ride in the car? That’s all that I need to say.
No matter if its near or far, a ride in the car, just makes her day.
She goes around and waits by the car door.
Anticipation creates a great desire to explore.
Jumps up on the front seat, and settles into place.
Patiently waits to greet, as I slide in, she kisses my face.
After her complete inspection, of everything inside,
satisfied and without objection, sitting right here beside.
A place where she can see it all, nothing will miss her attention.
Right next to me, her rump install, with not the slightest bit of pretension.
Alert to a window that she can reach, she loves to stick her head out.
The blowing wind prevents her speech, a temporary condition no doubt.
If we stop along the way, that look in her eyes, says ‘please stay’.
As I go to do the chore, I hear her whimpering galore.
Gone for moments then returning, with soulful force expressed in her yearning.
Through the window I can see, as I approach the car,
that she sees me, right there, beaming like a star.
When I open the door, she’s so excited,
I couldn’t love her any more, I feel so invited.
Hopping upon my lap, her paws rest firmly on my chest.
Her tongue licking with a little yap of pure joy at its best.
We spend a moment, in loving embrace,
till our excitement calms to a normal pace.
once settled we move again,
Pedal to the metal, slowly at first and then,
off we are to continue on our quest.
Its never a bore and no time to rest.
To feel the joy, in such a simple thing,
the glum destroy, a smile to bring.
The great lesson here, is look at simple chores,
if you hold all things dear, then happiness is yours Please click to read entire poem
