serendipity and the school run

or grand design
i am here this morning
on this small gravel road
that sweeps along
tall trees and soft heather
opening on this hilltop
to the distance of valleys
and mountains beyond.
about to pass this moment
of jagged purple horizon
and orange combed clouds,
i stop the car
before the road dips
back into trees
and bear witness
to the rising
of the sun.
