canyon drive

it's saturday
and that means
groceries to get.
the urge suddenly strikes
beckoning, pulling me
all at once
and instead of getting into that turning lane,
i find myself driving right on through.
impromptu, impulsive like. 

these mountains a magnet. 
a force i just couldn't resist. 
especially on mornings like these 
when new snow clings
to bare branches,
where gray clouds hang low and heavy,
and a river runs through it all.

soul food.
