Monday Poetry Train: I Saw Time

I saw time
this July morning
on I 95
between Saco
and Biddeford, Maine.

In the middle
of a bank
of lavender clover,
a clump of brown-eyed-susans

staring at me
through autumn
eyes.

I rolled
my window
up against
the chill.

Aww, man. I hate it when my favorite flowers foreshadow something icky.

But... to be honest, I could do with a blast of impending autumn. I'm ready to put this horrid summer behind me.
