Old Van

Old white van parked on the roadside, mud speckled in snow. Marble streaks and tire tracks from window frame could be a photograph.

Consider miles traveled through rain and ice, her engine puttering sparks of life as shiny sedans and semi road hogs blast their horns.

Though scraped and scuffed she rebounds back. Here she rests, waiting for her next directions. Watch out for biting dogs at wheels.

Old white van will travel on, trusting her driver to fill her tank and stay a steady course till she completes her job and makes it safely home.
