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

  1. I know you're out here, Mary Lee! You've made me see it, because I've driven it so many times. I like that "The road shoots me/like an arrow" so much. It is exactly right. Thank you!

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