authentic Amish

February 28, 2008

i left the highway after midnight last night

to take the back way home

and i saw a store i never saw before

it was called


the big electric sign out front said so

and even though the store was closed

fluorescent lighting shone down from the ceiling

illuminating handcrafted quilts

and furniture

and wagon wheels


in the red electric exit light above the doors

turned slightly pink by the white fluorescent lights within

and washed out by the glowing electric sign above


i began to doubt

its authenticity

    We are surrounded by the Amish . . they make some pretty tasty baked goods!

    Witty and giggle-inspiring as usual. 🙂

    (Out loud, even!)

    Oh ye of little faith. Pray the Amish God of thunder (electricity) doesn’t strike you down. 😉
