let's go this way

let's go this way
the slow way
the way where cars stop to admire
nature, an elk, a wildflower, 
the view.
oh, the view this way is so much
better when we get out of our 
metal box and breathe in the 
mountain air,
where time stops and clouds
hover above us, spitting cold rain
to wake us up to this world,
this most precious world.
let's go this way,
let's miss the traffic on the
highway, let's wind up in the
mountains, let's be thankful we
came this way,
not that way.
