Patches along the Road

by vexations

Auburn hair,
like the colors flashing before him
on the drive along Hwy 261.

He thinks of her when he travels.

Roan Mountain fades
as he steadies his wheel
along the white hyphens.

He remembers her when he travels.

Their daughter has auburn hair
like the dark patterns sunlight
accents among the autumn display.

He dwells on her and their daughter.

Rear view mirror reflects his creased forehead
like his mother grew from all her worries.
Travel grants him time —

time to think of them.

“Mistakes were made.”
A cop-out rests in that thought:
he made mistakes.

He broods when he travels.

I really enjoyed this poem... And a catchy title.
Roan Mountain fades
as he steadies his wheel
along the white hyphens.

What lines... kudos friend
