I Still Hear The Moment — Take Me Back   7 comments

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Take me back, way back
to the quietness
of a summer evening,
watching the moths
circle the lights,
when I was young.

A time when
everything was
black and white,
when I was only
beginning to test the gray,
where Jackson’s filling station
was the center
of what was happening
in my world —

a place where I could
get what I needed,
before I knew
what I wanted,
but still meet my connection . . .

take me back
in the nighttime
I still hear the moment,

the moment,

the moment,

take me back,

take me back.

  2. I can’t read the pump but would guess the price is about 5 or 10c.  Great old pic.   Judy

  3. Always enjoyed the small gas station in Indian Camp, where I lived. We could stop there for a bottle of Orange Whistle pop that only cost two cents. Take me back!
