My best friend bought himself an old car and painted it to resemble a flower garden. “Flower Power,” he said.
His plans were to go to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco and live in a hippie commune. He was into, “Love, Peace and Flower Power.”
I wished him well as he loaded up his flower power car. I laughed at the flower bed growing on the roof.
“Please stay safe,” I yell to him as he started the car to pull away.
I watch him drive down the street and know deep down, I will never see my friend again.
When I was in high school, the “Hippie Age” was going strong. I had a dear friend that wanted to be apart of the hippy commune in Haight-Ashbury (San Francisco, California). After graduation, I believe she left to follow her dream. I have not seen her since graduation, but I think of her often.
