road trip

by mandaceehb

peppermint grove road

preston beach

sun striking reedy trees,

shadows splayed across black roads roads roads for miles,

painting zebra crossings of light and shadows animating sparse vehicles flickering in and out of consciousness

music for imagination and adventure, calming non-existent nerves

tiny cows, sheep speckled in sprawling green fields while we fly by with the changing trees

forming tunnels, sunlight-dipped branches aching to touch over our heads

long bus rides and we are quietly together and alone
