Slithering Road

To drive down your winding path
   And leave all cares on the driveway
        Gives me such exhilaration.
                 Rubber grips asphalt
              As I guide down your byway,
         Feeling as my many horses
   Go through their paces.
 Man made landscapes fly by:
   Walls to keep lives private,
     Roofs and four walls 
       Designed to keep secrets in,
    Sectioned off courts 
  Where structured games play out.
 Along your winding spine 
     Nature takes the helm
        Grand oaks and pines dominate
           This new skyline 
               Serenity embraces these surroundings
              Before my natural habitat
             Makes his return 
            To the scene 
           And snaps me 
           Back to reality.
