travelling light

driving the morning road
unzipping the day
from darkness
with a car full of girls
and the feint whisper of dreams
like breath on the windows
as the sun rises desolate
over blackened mountains
through smoke heavy mist
across lakes
the burnt edges of the world after fire.
sleep has given way to chatter
like the murmur of of roosting birds
readying for flight
and now
travelling light
they sing
as they do when they are
together in the world
and the road ahead
stretches long.
