The Road to You A poem for Eva Andreasson

I write poetry for my friends and this is another one of the lovely Images that inspired me to write a poem.
I love images with emotion as you see this is one “Highway to Heaven” by my friend Eva Andréasson is full of wonder and imagination. She’s quite an artist.

The road to you was cold that day, and then came the snow.
I thought about going home and then I changed my mind.
I thought this time before I left take a heavy coat.
And in my pockets I found my gloves and a knitted cap.
I watched the snow fall all around and soon it touched my knees.
A blizzard flew before my eyes the road it disappeared.
And here I was knee deep in snow on my way to you.
The whiteness of the snow made me squint my eyes.
I crossed my fingers and looked inside my pocket and there I found my glasses.
This was my lucky day, I thought I lost them years ago, I guess I didn’t.
Here I was set for the cold everything I needed.
A half hour walking in the snow my toes were freezing cold.
And then I looked down at my feet and saw I wore my sandals.

    With your friends picture it really adds place and atmosphere to my mind as I read your poem.
    Nice job David.

  • Thanks Ann I always like to combine the tow together so the reader can see what I saw.
    Sometimes the foto doesn’t go into the journals.
    So I am stuck.
    It seems to be a big problem now that RB has played with the site nothings as easy as it was.
    Glad you like this thanks!

  • Hey Rita do you really think its talented?
    Here in Germany they don’t think that.
    Its wasted so it seems.
    So your comments and others make me very happy.
