missed turn

October 13, 2011- Small Stones 
missed turn by  Teri H Hoover

It has been four full days of hiking the sheer, red rocks of quiet canyon country.
I woke this morning to a dream.
Hands tense on the steering wheel.
Driving the streets of my childhood town,
impeded by unrecognizable obstacles,
I miss my turn.
