The Mountain Road

The car glides on the smooth mountain road,

making the turn barely in time

to watch a herd of deer

run through the grassy meadow

that rises up on the far side.

The air is filled with the sweet fragrance

of fresh grass and pine.

I’ve been here too many times

on this mountain road

to watch this herd of deer

and smell the air

that fills me of longing for more.

Yet I don’t know where…

I’ve never been here…

Not even today…

    1. My dreams are often full of nature symbolism. I try not to think too much. It will only give me a headache! I think, it is telling me to go travelling in a place where COVID can’t reach 🤣🤣🤣

    1. A dream that haunts me often. It leaves me feeling wanting more–a longing I am unable to explain. It is so real that I can smell it too. I have never been there though.
