Whispers from the Highway

Whispers enter dreams
the endless highway calls
the golden ball soon will rise
Eagles “Take it Easy”
under bluest of skies

No one can discern what lies
beyond the other side
but adventures flow
through veins
where options open wide

The road whispers its plea
utters promises
a direction leading to peace
worries tossed to the wind
seeking sweet release

Rolling along at sixty
trees sway in the breeze
golden lupine line the lane
moving free and easy
exciting chance to entertain

Time waits for no one
don’t assume there is more
live fully before it’s taken –
past the long stretch ahead
shines a light to awaken

Whispers enter dreams
the endless highway calls
the golden ball is rising
Eagles “Take it Easy”
a call for improvising

    I love this line so much. Yes, we don’t know how much time we have and it’s so important to seek those experiences that bring us joy and challenge us.

  2. I’ve always heard endless noise from the highway… vehicles whooshing. I have to step away to hear the whispers but they become different. Thanks for sharing this new perspective Lauren. I hear you.

    1. It’s nice to hear different perspectives, Balroop. It’s enlightening in a way, and I’m ready to get on the road. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your thoughts…

  3. Wonderful poem Lauren.. Indeed no one knows what lies beyond the other side…. But the journey getting there is never boring… Here’s to where Eagles fly and to where we find those resting stops along the highway..

    A perspective on the road, on life as it comes. A beautiful way to let us hear the whispers that guide us Lauren.

    1. Thanks for your beautiful comment, Marie, and I’m so glad you liked this poem and heard those whispers, too. 🙂 By the way, I’ve missed some of your posts because I can’t translate. Sometimes, I’m given the option, but lately, I haven’t been. So, if you know how to do this, please let me know. I’m at a loss. 💞

I appreciate your thoughts!
