country roads ll

We live in a town. 
I guess you would consider it the suburbs.
We are surrounded by little pockets of rural.
Fields full of weeds or corn or alfalfa or sheep.
Many moments through many seasons
where I  just stop 
and watch the horses and cows 
gaze and graze.
Old fence posts run 
with barbed wire between.
Where silos tower.
Roads taken 
driving kids to and from.
Familiar running routes, 
views that bring me peace.

I just had to pull over today
to see and to capture 
these last few glimpses of autumn.
The light was just right and even weeds are so pretty.

(more country roads from summer's end  here.)
