Little Lady Driving a Big Truck

We got a big beautiful dump of snow. Winter in all its glory. Chris hopped on the snowmobile, so I ended up driving his truck. I am not a great driver but these trucks sure are cool. Finding fun in the little things. Enjoy the poem.

Little Lady Driving a Big Truck

Little lady driving a big truck
silver throne on 33-inch tires.
Perched looking down over the hood
surveying the fields
seeing far ahead,
clear sailing on suspension 
even the princess and the pea 
would love. 
Unplowed road no problem
stopping in a snow bank 
to reach the mail box
so many workhorses pulling
bow lifting like a Chris Craft.
Round the corner to home
snuggled in the lumberjack sized, 
heated seat
toasted buns and warm fingers
wielding the broad wheel.
Just don’t ask me to back a trailer
Forward on country roads is my limit
for a little lady driving a big truck.
