Some of my favorite things these past two weeks. The poem is a little disjointed and skips around among the places I visited. I still enjoyed writing it.
Favorite South Carolina things:
Long hilly rollercoaster two lane highway
bridging Orangeburg to Lugoff
paths to the beach
dotted with flowers and
Friends that are faithful
Home cooked meals that taste
Boiled peanuts, regular or Cajun
muddy banks during low tide
gleaming in the sun,
She crab soup,
long extended conversations
oak trees that look like they have been
there for centuries
big, fat, and round
dressed in Spanish moss
Southern Drawl and
and hardworking people
that work till it hurts
to put a smile on your face.
Some people just don't know and
they wouldn't have it any other way.
This poem is dedicated to Mrs. Mary Elliot who passed away this week after living a life of service to her family, friends, and community. God bless her soul.
