The way I travel to work
is filled with lines
and blue skies
and an airport fence.
It’s straightness follows a curve,
a detoured right turn,
a left turn,
then up a hill.
Past houses both small and hugely expensive,
past groves of green and yellow trees,
past a trail crossing.
Another left turn.
Driveways on the left,
a narrow road,
the foliage of green weighs heavy on a barrier fence.
Almost there and then
The light is red.
Green is a go and so I must,
across the busy road,
past the gas station,
past the line of resting truck trailers
until I turn left one last time.
The way I travel to work,
is serene and peaceful amid the bustle of cars and trucks.
The sunrise greets me some days,
the dark of winter on others.
Fog and rain chime in unrequested.
At my destination
and hang out inside
until I can do it all over again, in reverse.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.
Just go with the flow.
Like a babbling brook, ambling stream or running river. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. This week’s prompt is “weigh/way/whey.” Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you do that last thing.
