Signs Ahead – Poem by Me

Driving too fast,
it is easy to miss the signs.
Days are crossed off
on the calendar, and we 
keep waiting for signs--
to hear something,
see something.
Are we not looking
hard enough, listening
carefully enough
as it is? It's easy to read
into things, and just as easy
to ignore them altogether.
Wait for the signs you want,
you might be waiting
a while. I'll stay with you, 
keep driving until 
we see something we like.

I hope you enjoyed this piece! It’s funny how often driving shows up in my poems ever since I got my license. Feel free to leave feedback and writing challenges in the comments. Stay safe and healthy out there.

Brooke
