tunnels by James Morehead

July 3, 2011

tunnels

dark to light, light to dark
through alpine ranges, sheer cliffs stark

arches appear thirty meters per second
with strobe lit tunnels of echoes that beckon

in my rear view mirror evening sun fades
when around the next corner there's shadow and shade

summit and valley, tunnel and span
the asphalt trail impassive and planned

the infinite vista trapped behind glass
as i focus on lanes and the traffic we pass

i long for an unbeaten trail to explore
a random adventure through a once hidden door

until then i drive down parallel lines
imagining journeys between exit signs tunnels
