Parting


No blurry eyed goodbyes or soul searching gaze
No extended hand holding either
Just a catch in my throat
the only giveaway
as the mute blue faded away to its haven.
It didn't beckon or cry
No hapless pleas of wanting to stay
or promises of an early return.
A clean break and a deep void.
A scooping out of memories good and bad
of challenges overcome
and times shared that tested mettle.
What a metal it was!
My blue Camry.

A very sweet send off to your car.

Ayesha,
It was old, a '91 Camry with some 200,000 (difficult & trying) miles on it! Gave it to the Kidney Foundation of America.

You are amazing, Id It Is. I love when people donate their cars.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Deb,
I did have a selfish interest (not that amazing afterall): I get tax exemption for doing it!
Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

I remember crying when my mom sold her VW when I was a kid. It had really become a part of my life, amazingly.
