Song of the Road

sunset
The road sings low key
A barely audible soliloquy
Beneath the diesel’s solemn growl

Sun sinks behind trees
Horizon is lost
And foreground focuses

Blacker than night
The road is a river
Lined with ghostly white

Time measured in miles
Night’s rhythm runs
To the Song of the Road

Features darkly etched
By instrument glow
Driver fixates on dawn ahead

And dawn will come
When the truck once more
Catches the Sun

And the Song of the Road
Will rumble on
Through the new-born day
