It isn’t at all new

It isn’t some grand discovery

Since looms were undone

Under cover of darkness

The road has called us

Some singers make it metaphor

Life as a ribbon of blacktop

Rolling through years

Still others use the grade

To score the difficulty

Of a season

But I see it as the road

The windows rolled down

Music playing

Just a little too loud

Remembering that the literal

Can bring us along

To wisdom and peace

And adventure

Is its own answer ~ Caroline A. Slee
