Advice for Travelers

Small signs mark the way.
Caution!
Travel slowly or you will miss them:
spring flowers, summer cloudbursts,
fall butterflies, winter whiteness --
all blur to green, brown, or gray
when viewed at sixty-five miles per hour,
with eyes straight ahead and the radio blaring.

The prudent traveler takes time
for the tiny signs,
life's landmarks
which makes the journey
worthwhile.
