summer night commute

on the bright side of tonight
everything seems ok, an indescribable way
the glass of the moon half full
as I ride, windows down, to the breeze

the night-time interlude of thoughts
or dreams wandering minds and roads
lights ahead just enough to allow for
expectation and anticipation of bends

in my life, maybe tonight or tomorrow
but for now it's a serene painted line
that I ride beside, dashes ticking
like a long distance clock, dash...
dash...dash...tick away this

haloed night, soft and tender, hardly
anyone else is out here right now
just me and the dashed clock
listening to the music of the asphalt
and humming memories of you

Caught the feeling and essence of driving well i thought. I really felt the rummble and drift and those smooth driving memories/thoughts whilst travelling along with your words.

I like that listening to the music of the asphalt. Many times I have heard the serenade. It is funny how they can sing differently.dunno

Poetry, beautiful, quality poetry, nuff said..., the way you captured a cameo of your reality as in the quoted phrase "listening to the music of the asphalt
and humming memories of you", is sooooo cool..., thanks...
