Color Floating
Lynn Mergen


Variegated vistas
Around every bend in the road--
Violet, pink, orange,
Arid, bumpy, dusty...
Thoughts of covered wagons
As we float along in our Mercedes,
Enjoying all the comforts.

We don't know how good we have it, do we! My grandmother traveled from Kansas to Arkansas as a child, and by airplane from Iowa to New York as a senior citizen. A lot of change in not so many generations. An excellent poem.

I love the alliterative opening line and the contrast between the covered wagons and the Mercedes.

When picking wild raspberries, I wonder the same: what would pioneers have seen back then; were they as sweet; would the birds feathers have been the same hue of blue?
