The Road Home on a Winter's Night

bits of iced over rain hit the windshield, roof, bumper
they shine bright as the Northern Star up front
they burn red like Fireflies dancing out back

roads slick and treacherous beckon unwary travelers
with diamond paved paths of possibilities
with dangerous potholes and pitfalls

stars burn crisp and clear in the dark heavens
winking and blinking an indecipherable code
nudging and prodding in the right direction


  1. smiles...i like the code in the stars...and the alliteration in that middle stanza....some cool jaunty rhythm to this as well vanessa....diamond paved pathes of possibilities, for sure...smiles.

  2. you really evoke time & place!
