On the side of the highway:

a body of thick fur and flat leathery tail.

Why did the beaver cross the road?

I guess we’ll never know.

I drive a lime aphid

along a grey ribbon,

through rippling hills

and valleys of

green velvet

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). 😉

When the road is dark

illuminated only be the narrowest of beams

look above to the sparkling canopy of stars

and ahead to the distance glow

and know

illumination is out there.
