side by side
time to ask the big questions
muse on what was and what will be.
time to hear the answers
pull you and me back into we.
The trucks are packed
tight with boxes and furniture.
You’re off to The Big City for university,
to earn the final credentials to begin your career.
Sorry to hear about the flat tire on the Coquihalla Highway, kid.
The Coquihalla Highway connects the interior of BC with the Lower Mainland and Greater Vancouver. It is a high mountain pass.
I drive a lime aphid
along a grey ribbon,
through rippling hills
and valleys of
along teal satin waters
beneath a blue silk sky
dusted with tufts of batting fluff.
(The aphid is actually a Beetle, but the colour is right). 😉
