**topic - taking the scenic route**

by Kimberly Bare

to look beyond
and find messages
in stone

subtle hints
in leaf prints
and willow bark

the silent beat
of rising heat
and roses
growing wild in
ancient cemetery rows

why is it that "the scenic route" is so often a pejorative term? all those new things to see can turn a banal journey into a voyage of discovery; an everyday adventure. you've captured that determined optimism beautifully. to look beyond indeed.
