“Toothy grin”

Sitting

In the car

For a long drive

Across

One desert

And into

Another,

Window down,

Hair blowing

Across her face,

And dark eyes.

A smile

Creeps across

Her beautiful face

Making her

Lips

Spread,

And expose

That “toothy grin”.

The weight and worry

Fading

In the rearview mirror,

As the long black ribbon of asphalt disappears on the horizon behind her

And the moment

To evaporate into

Grows larger

On the horizon

Ahead-

An oasis

Of rest

And a quieter mind,

Even if only

For that moment.
