In A drive of blue asphalt,
beyond A finite dividing
white line,
is billowing waves,
clouds ascending, descending,
A mirage of Sea.
A delectable, the liquid, blood
widening veins, nourishing pure illusion,
the heart throbs, to a series of
beats on the far side of
one, two, and three.
Hands, with knuckles pale,
grip the wheel,
A foot slides smooth
The pedal greets,
creating speed.
Driving, driving, driving,
past bounded asphalt blue,
beyond white lines,
straight-away into
surging waves of clouds
rising, falling,
The Mirage of Sea.

In so very few places - do I feel as at home as behind the wheel- letting the car take me away- letting the road offer the vistas of romance adventure and mystery - - you may or may not have intended any of this - but this I felt - and I thank you - Welcome      

~Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love,
time is eternity.

Zyell, Welcome to passions. You're gonna like it here and I can see if you continue to write like that you'll fit right in.
Be well

"It is the image in the mind that links us to lost treasures;
but it is the loss that shapes the image,
gathers the flowers weaves the garland."-
