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…

Serenity

There is a place where I drive my trailer

Everyday

To live forever

Next to the grassy banks of a tranquil lake.

The warm Sun calls me

And the clear water winks at me

Beconing me to come out.

I dip my toes in the water.

I look at the starfish that adorns the rock

Buried by my feet

As eels and gold fishes glide by.

I see a swan swimming at a distance.

I think if you.

I close my eyes and

Wake in your arms again.

-Dedicated to W, my love, my life
