Crossroads

“My battery is low and it’s getting dark.” Mars rover Opportunity

I slept deeply under the strawberry moon

had dreams of your fear of traffic

you would not cross the highway

even though the signs were clear

you were lying on the sidewalk

unable to get up and move

while I was at the other side

waiting and calling

I had to go on

alone

_______________

dVerse prompt using a quote from a list. I loved the quote from the Mars rover.

    To the true heart of it Jane, we all go on alone. This was so powerful in its brevity. Not one letter too few, nor too many, Excellent my friend!
