Poem: "Road Whispers"

This poem came from the May 5, 2009 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from miintikwa and sponsored by janetmiles.


Road Whispers
– a triolet


In the gloaming of the day,
The sunset turns the road to gold.
You can hear its whispers say,
In the gloaming of the day,
“Find adventure … come this way.”
So lift your feet, and break home’s hold:
In the gloaming of the day,
The sunset turns the road to gold.
