The Parkway

Driving down the Parkway on a dark overcast night.  Twin cones of light suddenly knife upwards and rise in the sky.  In the glare of a million candles I watch clouds unfurl, like a motion picture playing on Mother Nature’s own big screen.  The deer continue grazing uninterrupted at road’s edge.  They have already seen this movie.

Reminiscing

Posted in October 2009 at 11:10 pm by The Layman

Re-tracing a route which leads to a place that no longer demands my presence.  How easily the dormant emotions leap up and wash over me.  My stomach knots at the specter of a deadline which can now only beckon from within the confines of the past.
