Thơ at I-95

going the distance 

through sections of the forest

clatter of dusk

stints of rain


go through

all that past

father was a mountain

mother was just there

a cloud in passing

dusk drifting

seamlessly through the forest

spirit rolling with the approaching rain

picking my daughter up from a campus 

so far away, the distance seemed but a moment

a flashback.

now I’m a parent

driving my children

and the faraway clouds

in sahā
