Full beam

Not a superhighway
but a motorway
not that it matters
either way
it’s just another means
of getting to where
and I do believe
we’re getting there.

The journey is often longer
than the roads you travel
along
a wise man once told me.

It is sometimes off the beaten’
where you meet them
golden moments
and
I am glad to say
I’ve met a few among the meadows,
drinking in the honey when the dew
lay gently on me
where the morning tapped me lightly
and I woke.

then it’s back to the same
cruising on the six-lane
believing that it’s okay
to race through life this way.
