The ribbon of asphalt reflects like a mirror
the trees overhanging with autumn’s glory.
The rain adds slickness to that old asphalt
as cars, trucks and vans zoom past.
The world and its upward perspective
is seen there on this country highway.
The world and its rush to and fro
along this road is viewed and heard as well.
The roads of life, they will take you wherever but
what you see along the way is in the eye of the beholder.
