Slower Road

I will take the slower road with the view
not the faster without
the winding over the straight
hills over the flat

You will catch me gazing along horizon
rainbow sunset mountaintops
go ahead and pass me
we will meet at the same light, stopped

We travel together to a similar place
but I will have experienced the world
while you have experienced pace

life’s gold passing your window
in shutter’s click captured
frame by frame it blinks
in escaping time’s fleeting

you bypass the here
to shave a second off
of there

I will take the slower road with the view
not monotonous rat-racetrack
ocean over asphalt
endless sky intact

  1. IMHO, brilliant. Rhythm, sentiment, tone, etc., are all there in a beautiful package. Even at your slower pace, I will be a step or 2 behind you, stopping to smell not only the roses, but the dew drops and the soil as well. —Carlos
