Postcards From The Mother Road
by Frank Elkins ©2016

On the Mother Road –
America's main street,
The Highway of Dreams...
Trying to regain something left behind.

Reconnecting dots in history,
arousing cherished childhood mystery –
Lost pieces of forgotten recollection,
rediscovering what once was mine.

Recalling stolen memories –
Picked up like pilfered pieces of petrified wood,
concern and consequence misunderstood –
A keepsake of remembrance.

"Fading childhood apparitions,
reappear as ghosts along a haunted highway.
Specters of an abandoned high desert plain...
Graffiti rendered ruins now all that remain."

Foreshadowing the road ahead –
Memories forgotten, and memories dead.
Reclusive shadows that can't be retraced,
from a not so distant time and place...

Reminding us who we once were.

Midst a muddled reminiscence,
things inescapably come together at last –
Our life and destiny reside in the future,
because you cannot re-pave the past.
