Scenes From the Road

Scenes seen on my way to work this morning:

- An obviously irritated cat, fur clumped in punkish spikes by the long, wet grass, vainly attempting to lick its feet dry while sitting in said grass.

- Three pairs of Canada geese carefully shepherding their goslings along the side of the road, watched over by 2 mournful Sicilian donkeys.

- A long, straight stretch of road, tall green trees lining either side, a narrow strip of luminous grey sky, and a single crow flying above the centre line.

- Glossy black horses behind white rail fences against a green meadow.

- A blaze of azaleas, in all the colours of flame, burning brightly across the curve of a highway embankment.
