we woke up to what felt like winter
a fine layer of blue frost coating nature
smoke trails coasting around branches
made heavy by the morning

our windshield's small crack came alive
speeding across
creating an uncomfortable arc
joining side to side

we made our way down the neglected highway
we took a wrong turn
after making up some time
we became lost
nearly an hour

one last diversion
moving art in the form of train cars
accepting failed plans with laughter
lightened by all the beauty
we let the winter's day
lead the way
