Driving down this road most everyday I observe the play of light.
The game is most beautiful to behold driving here at night.
The mountains of early morn colored in hues of blue and pink
Would arrest if I were not driving, having no time to think.
I concentrate my attention to avoid disaster’s call.
But when the season changes and I want to enjoy the fall,
I leave my car parked and take to walking the colorful mall.
Thus I find I can enjoy this scenic relaxing delight!
Wandering and contemplating, though cold, delight doesn’t shrink.
Until the autumn passes with the first white winter snowfall.
*mall as in walkway…
(Well…I tried this form or OctPoWriMo 2013 – I have to admit that I don’t really care for it much. The 15 syllable word count makes it very cumbersome to write.)
