Highways and Byways

Highways and Byways

Life has many paths, some are easy, others are strange

stretching

over

the landscape we find a life on those which may derange

rising

lowering

with no rhythm making bellies feel a fuller range

moving

beyond

the horizon as the mind creates an exchange

freeways

expressing

a mood of speed is suitable for an interchange

back-roads

having

gravel are dusty for the driver to rearrange

travel

exhausts

the driver if the range is overly counterrange

devil

drivers

speed and cause accidents over a wider downrange

drifting

roadways

can make the stomach queasy though a car is flowing

twisting

turning

roadways are dangerous for all cars, overflowing

country

riding

is fun for traveling on short trips offering growing

grandma

grandpa

driving down the back roads is about fun exploring

taking

vacations

by car is a fun trip, on highways to be soaring

taking

crossroads

to gravel roads is sight seeing without knowing

counting

vehicles

to see how many in color, being outgoing

playing

mental

games to be happy while you are sportingly roaming

singing

happy

songs, rabble rousing as you are traveling along

cruising

along

while singing happily to make you feel better, strong

riding

routines

are not well known, though love is created to belong

laughing

breaks-out

suddenly as the kids are going half way ding-dong

mother

father

are half nuts, someone begins singing a cradle-song

driving

forward

till off road obstacles bring on an awkward torchsong

dipping

arteries

cause the stomach to be upset, as we go headlong

railroad

crossings

cause us to stop, waiting brings us to a singalong

passovers

create

air disturbances to beware, air is an insight

stopping

eating

on the roadway is a treat, and a dining delight

pretending

sleeping

like a hideaway in the backseat, for fun foresight

roleplay

signals

time to fool mom and dad, hiding, create incite

racetrack

watching

is family fun that over time begins to ignite

lounging

backseat

makes you sleepy on the way to sleep, having a good night

dreaming

fantasies

of wonderlands of the subconscious appetite

rem-sleep

wanderings

open new horizons into view, a new nightlight.
