Toward Unknown Horizons

(Interstate 94; Michigan)

We drive on, toward
unknown horizons.  The
sky is the same muted
light gray we have grown
accustomed to after nearly

a week of rain.  The trees,
however, are so vibrant
that they may as well be on
fire, set aflame.  The color

is astonishing--orange, gold,
red, green; copper hues and
jewel tones, a veritable
masterpiece.  In a matter of

weeks, the landscape will
shift into shades of cold and
endless white.  We soak it
all in: the scenery in transition,
the sparkling effervescence,

the road ahead.
