First leg

Yep, she's leaving soon.  All the pieces are being accumulated at home.  Will they fit in the car or do we need to rent a van?  We will accompany her to Colorado.  We will not be the same on the return trip.  But first comes the trip west.

As I contemplate
The trip to Colorado
Two weeks hence
I consider the changes
Facing me
On the return drive
Back through the fields
Of Nebraska,
Of Iowa,
Then back
To the western suburbs
Of Illinois.
I contemplate the changes
I will find.
But first,
First comes the trip
From the western suburbs
Through Iowa,
Then Nebraska,
And finally Colorado,
That first leg
Of the journey.
