CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!

Christmas lights on the highway,

White sets of lights headed my way…

Ranks of red

Forge ahead,

Past blue light specials slyly!

–J.E.C.

AWAY FROM THE SUNSET

Flying away from the sunset’s

Pink and purple,  light blue…

Hurtling into  darkness,

Thinking of what he must do.

Toward eventual sunrise,

Determined to save a soul…

When in rush hour traffic

To exit he finds…a hole!

Gathering darkness swirls,

He sees the tail lights beyond…

Reaching his destination

The quiet woods surround!

PARTING GREETINGS

PARTING GREETINGS

During rush hour a truck,

Tried to wish me “good lick”…

In that slow race

He wanted my space,,

The situation nip and tuck!

The behemoth cut in I yelled,

To the right lane expelled…

The folks  in that lane

Saw it plain

And held a space as if God willed!

I swerved back into HIS lane,

Ahead of him and sane…

He decided that, lo,

The right lane was too slow,

And found space to move over again!

TRAFFIC GYMNASTICS

TRAFFIC GYMNASTICS

Smoothly a minivan,

Slid over to where we ran…

Neck-and-neck,

But what the heck–

It made it through as planned!-

Diagonally challenged

Traffic carefully balanced…

At sixty “per”,

By in a blur,

Some drivers show amazing talents.

Judging how big is the hole

Between cars takes control…

Finding their place

In a rat race

Helps other drivers feel old!

So glad we all arrived,

Safely on the drive…

To work or home

With or alone,

The excitement gives me hives!
