Side Road...

Exiting the highway...find me somewhere on a side road to enjoy everything I can before time finds me out:
over there, where I saw a billboard, there is a barn...
over there, where the highway guardrail was, there is a split-wood fence...
I was passing cars moments ago, now cattle are passing by me...
and that concrete span across the river is not-for now I must find my own way if I desire passage...
but no-I will sit down on that stump over there and enjoy the "noise pollution:" the sparrows, the crows, the robins, the cardinals...
and I will observe the traffic: the deer, the many squirrels in the branches--acrobats in their own right--and the company of anything else that does not mind my invading its space.
All of this beneath that sun that plays hide-and-seek with the happy clouds...
all of this in the watchful sight of Him Who makes everything perfect...even a winter moment off of the beaten path.
