My 'roadside' attraction, my arch,
hadn't been visited by me in some time
Being the first day of our new year
I felt it was time.
A short drive, really.
No texting while driving
but 'shooting' the road
was a must.
often my forte'
Cold rain, with an occasional snowflake,
gave the weathered basketweaving
a certain sheen in the dreariness.
I wondered if my camera would be
all right in this wetness as I pondered:
Nature has its way of deepening thoughts,
of warding away concerns and time.
The arch pulls me in.
It stands tall through the years.
Grasses were not cut in front of it.
I wondered if the road crews had ever
considered cutting it away.
Should I inquire?
Fate can't always be trusted.
