Another Road

We’re making great time but
I notice
off to my right a gravel road
forsakes
this busy highway,
curves
through a gentle valley,
disappears
at times behind golden grain,
circles
scatterings of would-be
willow forest–
if abundant rain would only fall–
and loops
over an autumn-dusted hill.
Wise little road,
it chooses
to roam among topaz fields
while we harried travelers
zoom endlessly
through life on super highways,
missing
something more important.

My response to today’s Word Press daily prompt:
The road less traveled.
