Meanwhile, somewhere in the Rockies… a poem appeared

This poem is in response to a poetry prompt that appeared in my Inbox this morning — it called to me as I remembered taking several photos from the car as my beloved and I drove back from the west coast earlier this summer.

NOTE:  The poem itself in no way reflects our relationship. We are committed to driving together, side by side, or the rest of our lives!

However, sometimes, a prompt elicits thoughts that are asking to be expressed. In this instance, the prompt was for a Quadrille (a 44 word poem) that had to include the word, or variation of the word, “Nick”.

This poem wrote itself into being.  It was fun!

The Road To Nowhere

I nicked a photo of your thoughts
left abandoned
on the roadside
where you drove off
without me.

A photo nicked holds not enough time
to find the way back
to where we drove side by side
on the road to nowhere
but Love.
