can we blame the distance

you and I,
we are driving
the whole way to Pasadena.

white lines
waver in the heat –
parallel reflections
in hindsight
just behind horizon’s edge.

I wonder,
can the travels
bend our paths
back together

have we past-
through that intersection
well before starting
our trip to Pasadena.

    Exquisite…somehow you have managed to weave a sense of loss, a glimmer of hope, the uncertainty of future and the longing of love…all together in a heartfelt verse….wow ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the idea of actually heading for Pasadena – of course it’s a real place, but for me it’s a mythical name from the movies.

    moving …!

    … I could be wrong (I usually am) but should that last stanza read:

    have we passed …’

    I realise I’m probably stepping on metaphor-shells here in which case please forgive me

    I love the phrase “can our travels bend our paths”. It makes rich use of the possibility of journey. Thanks for this.

    I noticed “past” as well, but liked the way that it fits as the last word of that thought, but read aloud flows into the next as passed.


So talk to me, baby ...
