A Metallic Sea

Wind swept parking lot

Vibrant Mustangs and Hondas

A metallic sea over sand

Of black and yellow

People adrift

People with purpose

Coming and going

In reverse

Or straight forward

Sunlight glares from windshields

Painting the scene in oranges and reds

Purple clouds as the sea goes dark

Pairs of spotlights

Lead the way

Of whom?

To where?

Let the asphalt take you away.

****Forgive me for messing with the colors of the words, I was just trying to have some fun. Really though, I was inspired by a parking lot near sunset. The thought of a parking lot as the harbor where your journey begins struck me as interesting. There is something deeper here though, I know, but do you?
