OVER THE GRANITE EXPANSE ~~



While climbing gingerly over the rocks
one foot at a time
finding new spring growth
flowers
many flowers
as I lift my head
over the granite expanse
and
the pool of sheer glass water
I see 
sitting side by side
these two
such love and peace
this day

GOING DOWN THE ROAD


 Seriously getting out on the road
really opens your eyes 
to new and fresh
views
so put on your caps
and 
allow me ~~


in the middle of the province
on roads just off the main drag of everyday life 
I found these homes, abodes and four legged creatures


old weathered barn wood
in many forms 
from actual buildings to farm carts 


to seeing the age and weather worn stories behind these beauties


sensing the speed of the moment 
in this moment of calm


wondering who built this building 
fitting perfectly into the setting


remembering the adage
that when cows lay down
that the weather will become rainy or at least cloudy


 half way there to either rain or sun


horses many of them feeding in delight
transfixed on this moment


a quick dash across the road in front of us
'a deer' 


and
'going down the road'
as literal as 
can be expected



I include this 2011 trailer of a sequel to the original 1970 movie
called "Going Down The Road"
~
thanks for indulging my trip today
Cheers as always.
