How would I ever get home
if not for this road
with all its potholes?
Sometimes I scream in the dark
when my headlights aren’t bright enough
to light the way.
Or when fog and icy rain
lead me to follow random taillights into ditches
and even over cliffs.
Or when road blocks and construction
force me into
I call out to You
and with your love,
the mist clears
and the byways return
to the Mother Road.
Now I can see the horizon
studded with sandstone mittens
and granite ships.
The valley of gilded cottonwoods
rimming the Rio Grande.
The red-tailed hawk scribbling circles in the sky,
and the pronghorn churning dust on the prairie.
With the pavement threading out to infinity,
white dashes disappearing beneath the hood
and this full tank of gas,
I know I can go anywhere.
What a beautiful reflection on the spiritual highway, so many uncanny parallels and an inspiring transformative perspective. Thank you forever and always for your words that guide my way, correct my course, and reveal the soul reality hiding behind the curtain of my mind. Much love!
Thank you, Stephanie. “Soul reality hiding behind the curtain of mind.” That is an eloquent truth. We are so fortunate to have the Beloved to pull back that curtain and let the light shine in.
Always so very lovely, to receive your beautiful expressions,
of the Master’s love and grace.
They bring great inspiration.
Much love and appreciation.
Thank you, Teddy, for your sweet feedback. It definitely inspires me!
A lovely visual journey of the pathway home. ?
Thank you, Monica. I’m happy to share this Mother Road with you!
How would I ever get home, indeed?! Beautiful contemplation through a very inspiring poem. Thank you for the beautiful imagery and strong metaphor.
Thank you, Rudy. As you know, it is such a blessing to come to view all as God. 🙂
Oh I love this! And the photo …… Nuevo Mexico?!?
Yes, Kelley, it is en route to Chimayo, a road you know well. I’m happy that you enjoyed the poem. Love and blessing to you!
Wonderously beautiful, as always❣
I love my road trips and the one with the Beloved headed Home is the best all
Every experience along the way furthering my awareness
Thanks for the imagery.
