287 North

leaving colorado

Driving on 287 North

clouds smiling, sky typical blue

gas pedal pressed hard

trying to catch the wind.

In my chest a feeling stirs

words recorded to be used

later in lines of rhymes.

Late April quick trip

snow possible in Wyoming

must conclude matters at hand

before highway 287 North is closed.

Off to the right a dozen antelopes

twenty-seven more miles to Laramie

where breakfast is served at the Chuck Wagon

Cowhands Classic only $5.99.

Oh give back the Old West

where life was slow

folks talked without a phone

noticed the beauty all around.
