Journey in the Night

Before I knew it
Night fell
And the highway became
A magical stretch of meditation

The bus carries me on the road
Through darkness
Through fast moving lights of cars
Passing by stores, houses, and more darkness

I gaze out of the window
Listening to Adele’s album “30”
Holding one apple in my hand
My legs put up on the chair

This magical moment
I don’t want to miss it
This place in between
Where I become the observer of the world

I hold my breath
As the bus carries me through the night
Leaning my head against the window
I want to remember this moment
