Tires wail on asphalt paving
Whistling possibilities and promise
Not without foreboding: mind’s fog, mostly
Dampened resolution, but determined
Drivers unknown, along their path
Mostly away, by responsibility
Other worlds, not family but
Nearly, in time and engagement
Other passerby, a walking few
Today’s way concerned with
Speed, fast as can be, more
Meters of metal than pliable feet
On their way, all
What may come, no question
Instead, little matters make
full days that also pass away.
Thanks so much for visiting!
Did you know, the word motel, coined as a portmanteau of “motor hotel”, originates from the Milestone Mo-Tel of San Luis Obispo, California (now called the Motel Inn of San Luis Obispo), which was built in 1925.
