Following The Lights Back Home

Tuesday, 31 January 2017 21:53

Riding my motorbike home from work. The mist has teamed up with the darkness to hide the twist and turns of the road. When I am caught in the headlights of oncoming cars I am alone. Surrounded by nothing but the bright lights and the darkness beyond. Then it passes and I am able to see where I am again. This repeats throughout my misty countryside journey between towns until I catch up to a Land Rover. Its tail lights guide me past the bright lights and through the darkness, around the bends and over the hills. The two of us passing through the night back home. To safety. To my life.
