The Scenic Route

For Haiku Monday, this week's assignment is to take the road less traveled.

I can reach my destination on the interstate, or... not!


the four-lane is fast,

but I'd rather go slowly

where red rocks beckon.


Oh! Bet this would make a good fib assignment too!

For more on this location, see Historic Red Rocks!

Now that's what I call a scenic route! I'd "go slowly" too - for lots of reasons! Stunning photo and haiku to match :)

Yes, yes, I would rather go where the red rock beckon. Thanks for reminding me

well, i agree with that - i once added about 30 minutes onto my daily journey so as to avoid the monotony of the motorway.

that looks like wonderful country - a fine poem, sl.

The layout adds a lot to the poem. Space, taking its time, savouring the flavour.

I am learning to savour the journey without being overwhelmed by the prospect of the destination. this post was a wonderful boost!

"where red rocks beacon" is a great flow of sound. Gorgeous looking area too.
