Straight Stretch, East of Susanville, California, United States of America

Straight Stretch

Oft times the path ahead
Seems crystal clear and straight

Still I proceed with caution
Keep my eye upon the road

For sudden curves unforeseen
For living things which cross the lane
For side roads leading from the route

Some could throw me from my course
And I could lose my way

Some may form a barrier
Force me to a halt

Some may lead me far astray
Distract me from my goals

Some may offer opportunity
A better route to go

And which of these
I may not know
Until I drive
Some many miles beyond

Sunset Glitterbomb, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Petals ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #310

Perched
Beneath a sky
Of cobalt and lavender

While the dying sun
Throws glitter bombs
Off glass towers

But all I can see
Are three dots
Racing on the display

“Jason is typing”

This Schrödinger’s mobile
Holds two truths
Like petals pulled from a daisy

Each dot flashing in turn

Both are true
Until the dots stop
To reveal the nature

Of the final petal

Becalmed, English Bay, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Becalmed ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #303

A grey day
Light flattened
By a thick
Midday haze

Made all the more grim
By my mood
Impenetrable as the atmosphere

From full steam
To dead ahead slow

All stations stop

Close my eyes
Deep breath

Not stopped
Becalmed
Diminished light emerges

Find the blue
In sky and  sea
Contrast highlight with shadow
Underway, with tranquil gratitude
