The Long Commute by David L. White

The Long Commute
© David L. White

Inbound and outbound, 
we navigate on auto-pilot. 
We stop and start, 
lost in our own rolling clouds 
of perception and perspiration.

The scenery and seasons 
often seem so much the same 
that whole lifetimes 
begin to blend together.

And as we drop our coins 
in the toll booth basket
at the gates of breath,
we move back and forth
in space and time 
between God and
what else is there?

David's book, Lost and Found, is available now on Amazon at: and in the Milwaukee County Public Library System.
