Driving Home on Highway 10 – a poem by Jean Biegun

Driving Home on Highway 10
My Honda speeds
past a sudden field of yellow. 

I don’t do what the Buddha said:
Let it go. 

So much of me desires
instant yellow fields,
bouquets of Heaven’s
smiley face salutation, 

high-fives of that bliss
I rush to.

Jean Biegun, retired in Sacramento, CA, began writing poetry in 2000 as a way to overcome big-city job stress, and it worked.  Poems have been published in Mobius: The Poetry MagazineAfter Hours: A Journal of Chicago Writing and ArtWorld Haiku ReviewPresence: International Journal of Spiritual Direction and other places.
