Epic Road Trip #1

Another Sunday evening,
kids nestled towards TVs,
parents sneaking trips to distant lands
before their dreams and commute routines.

Only a few stray gusts of wind
give any indication that for us
the voyage is one way.

The shimmering mountains,
Sajuaros unique as people
in stunning silhouette
against a purple sky.
The harsh yellow flowers,
the tears goodbye.
