Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Loved You So



Well dad, how long has it been

since you passed from

us to wherever

it is that we all go?



I’m sorry I couldn’t say the

things that needed saying,

when I know I should have said them

to you while you were still here with us.



I remember all the places

we used to go and the things we used to do;

all the great stuff that I learned

from just listening to you.



If I could travel back in time

So many years ago,… Continue

Rays of the Sun

Weeding out in the yard



Late one afternoon;



Daisies, marigolds, daffodils,



Violently blooming on the threshold of summer.





A warm humid day—the air barely stirring.



Sweat darkening my armpits;



Dripping off my nose.



In the distance…

A Burning Anger

Little tourist towns way up in the mountains



With fancy-pants cafes and snooty up-scale bistros.



“Come save with us—our prices rolled back!”



Smiling, sweating shop owners chasing the almighty dollar.



While regular, poor folks, willing to work for an honest day’s wages



Fret and starve back up in the hills.…

Blacksnake

Blacksnake livin’ in the pottin’ shed



hangin’ from the rafters just fine,



in walks a lady spots the Blacksnake,



screaming and hollering “oh my.”





Poor old Blacksnake just hangin’ there,



not hurtin’ nobody in the world.



Seems some folks don’t like no…

Smoky Mountain Rain





Smoky Mountain rain, fresh and clean, driven through the cracks and crevices



of the cold crystalline aquifers in the deepest dark far below our warm, sunny world.



This precious resource filled up the gargantuan canyons of Earth’s oceans eons ago;



long before we humans strutted the stage of creation.



It was and is the source of all life, a…

Hey Chuck

I've been reading your posts-and enjoying them greatly. I'm from way out west-in Cherokee Co. I live in Brasstown. Having lived here all my life-I greatly relate to your writing.
