West on I-70

WEST ON I-70

The horizon circles me
like a coyote
warily
watchfully
remotely

The road shoots me
like an arrow
impassively
relentlessly
directly

Pikes Peak greets me
with a nod
discreetly
solemnly
distantly

  2. Mary Lee, this is just beautiful. And I was going to point out exactly the same bit Linda did. Fantastic poem!
