Painted Highways

Written by: Cynthia Alvez

A gray day  -
Harmoniously sky and highway match
In paisly and gray shadows, with
Shades darting in green between...

Rain drops suddendly splash
My windshield and their jaggered
Edges break apart as they slowly glide,
Playing tag with the wipers, trying
To make me smile my evening weather
Blues away.
