Cool Cars


take me away
on the open road
in a red car, top down
the wind in my hair
the sun on my face
favorite song on the radio

along the coast
through twists and turns
hugging those curves

from east to west
from mountain to ocean
from sunrise to sunset
not a moment missed
on this journey
oh, so fleeting


My husband and I went to a car show in our hometown of Pleasantville, New York. Although I'm not into cars as much as he is, I really enjoyed it. The cars were customized hot rods in colorful, artistic designs! The first is pretty in pink and blue, and here is a detail of the intricate, unique artwork. How fun is that? But there is more.


How about this sleek red Corvette?


Or a yellow Ford Mustang?


Maybe something in orange?


 A cool Chevy Nova in green and orange curves.


My favorite detail of the design.


Or maybe you prefer a striped Mustang Cobra?


Look what's under the hood of this Corvette Z06!
 

This design looks like an abstract!


Or how about a Harley?


What a cool blue art on the Harley!

The poem is posted for Poetry Jam where Laurie invites us to write on the topic of "vacation" in 15 lines or less. I've always wanted to go on a cross-country trip in a red convertible! What about you? What's your favorite car and destination? Enjoy!

    1. Yes, it's more about the design than the car. It was like going to an art show! :)

  3. That abstract one is cool
    When it comes to cars i'm a fool
    Don't know much at all
    But they are nice to look at on your wall

      A modern design, true
      Could be on a wall
      In someone's hall :)

  6. Beautiful car photos. I agree, it would be great fun to go on a road trip in a convertible....with the wind in the hair and the sun on the face. With your pictures and poem I am also dreaming the dream.

  21. Cara Loredana,torno a casa e ricomincio il mio tour nella blogosfera.
    Che bello ritrovare i tuoi post e leggerli uno dopo l'altro,ammirando le immagini,dai fari alle automobili in mostra,alla tranquillità delle fotografìe scattate nel verde ...le tue elaborazioni fotografiche sono molto creative e sottolineano sempre il senso delle parole che ci proponi nei tuoi versi sensibili e musicali.
    Buona domenica!Abbraccio,Rita.

  22. I love cars!
    Especially those sports or the muslce cars!

    The day of my wedding I drove a Ferrari 348 TS, when I came to NY from the airport to the Hotel we arrived by Limousine (was a gift from my father in law) and then from Orlando to Kennedy Space Center, I rented a Mustang Convertible...


    Then you can even imagine how I envy the fact that you could watch a show like that ...

    ;-)

    1. Ciao Francesco, questa mostra di macchine era in citta' dove vivo a Pleasantville. Era gratis quindi conveniente e bello a guardare le macchine con mio marito. Le fanno spesso queste mostre, se ritorni a vacanza a NY le puoi vedere anche tu! :) Che bello hai fatto il viaggio di nozze a NY :)
