Tibetan prayer flags swung wildly as
her mud stained Lincoln bounced in and out of
pot holes, escaping its lane from time to time.
Peace symbols and coexist stickers clung
to the dented bumper and her head bobbed
along in perfect peace, unaware of the chaos
she brought between the dotted lines of our lives.

ha. nice contrast in her beliefs and reality...sounds like she rolls somewhere in between and probably has no clue...

Yes Lydia!
This was a actual event that struck me so vividly i needed to get it into a format for sharing!

That's exactly what I thought Brian! The irony of the chaos she brought despite a clear desire for peace & harmony, I guess I could have added a line about her serene smile. I'm sure she was unaware of the anxiety she was causing!
