Poetic Thursday: That’s Why

Happy Tuesday. It’s time again for poetry with Pam and kitties at Two Spoiled Cats.

This is the photo inspiration for this week:

Although it’s felt a bit like that recently in our corner of southeast Virginia, I can’t imagine actually being in that setting.

Here’s my poem:

That’s Why

Yes, it was hot and it was dry,
And, yes, you’re probably wondering why.

Why was I there on that mountain of sand?
Was  I just trying to prove I’m a man?

But when the day comes and I rock in a chair,
I’ll smile and remember  that I was there.

Looking back won’t make me sad;
no need to say “I wish I had”.

But those rocking chair days will have to wait.
Adventure is calling, and it’s a date.
