Theresa Ann Moore

A Country Road

The tree lined country road barely has two lanes
The serene path narrows and dips straight ahead
Inviting everyone with a silence that has no name
Captivated by nature’s beauty… my inner spirit is led

Sunbeams filters through branches that are interlocked
The glorious canopy spills patches of light on gravel
A breeze flutters through lush leaves… heat is blocked
Carefree visitors are protected as they leisurely travel

The peaceful scene is one that will forever remain
In memories that hold the splendor of quieter days
Today cars race on the highway… speed is maintained
The intense glare upon the pavement directs the way

    Reminds me of a similar location i often
    travel and let my eyes capture the similar
    breathtaking view, even i couldn't help writing on it.
    Lovely piece.

    Very nostalgic. I love country roads. Indeed, I have lived near one
    for all of my seventy-one years. Ten from me.

    Warm regards,

    Sandra

    Amazing how things have changed over the years.How a narrow tree covered country road can bring back so many memories.We still find them if we but get out off the fast lane and slow down while on an 'off road'.They certainly help clear my mind at times.
    Well done, and thanks for renewing a fond memory!
