Oil Wells, Windmills And Red Dirt Roads - Poem by Marilyn Lott

You can tell when you travel a certain road
What direction you are going
The sound, the smell and surroundings
And what could possibly be flowing

Whether oil wells are in motion or silent
I’ve seen them all ‘cross country
They seem to have some authority
And are very exciting to me

Windmills too when in movement
Or even when they’re totally still
Are important and so meaningful
There’s a special position they fill

And Red Dirt roads are beautiful
How I love the sun gleaming down
Oil Wells and windmills on Red dirt Roads
Have such distinctive looks and sounds!

    Things that a normal eye does'nt appreciate

    poems out of them the poets create

    they see, smell and travel too

    the roads seen and traveled by me and you..


    the oil wells, red dirt and the windmill

    the moments of rush and time standing still

    they capture it all for me and you

    the poets...our friends true....
