On My Way to School

Already late for work,
Distracted by the view,
I  stopped to take a picture,
Hoping my presence didn't rue.

Keeping a careful distance,
Wondering if he'd stay,
I silently lowered my window
and found he had something to say.

He acknowledged my appearance,
letting me know I was seen.
He proudly stood his ground
As if it was routine.

Arriving at my destination,
I felt compelled to share,
Marveling at the rural drive,
And the simple beauty I found there.
