I spent so much time alone driving in my car. Looking at the beauty of the trees that passed. Watching how the billowing clouds crowded around the mountain tops. I saw bright blue skies and drove through the fog that fell at midnight.
I wish I had no destination, so I could get out and smell the brave flowers that grew so close to the road. I wish time didn’t hold me captive, or that it would stand still, so I could dive into the lakes and streams I passed at seventy miles per hour.
I wish I didn’t have anywhere to be, so I could keep on driving and see the beauty of the world. I wish I had no need for a watch or a phone. I wish no one ever rushed me away from the night sky. I just want to stop and smell the flowers, and leave everything else behind.
