Red Ahead

I see a red vehicle up ahead
so I shall stay in this lane instead
a race for sure he will surely dread
the man in the red vehicle up ahead

the light turned green and off i sped
the tires squealed as i wore my tread
as I pulled in front
of the red vehicle up ahead

as I take the lead my tires have bled
the rubber in which the speed has shed
I look in the mirror and realize instead
that I am the red vehicle up ahead!

Hiding Within

a symphony of whispers
tempting in the night
possibilities considered never
beyond the normal sight
uninvited thoughts
become a welcomed friend
what things may come
still hide within a rocky cleft
and burrow deep
in the shadow of your mind
