Winter drive

In the afternoons when i drive along the wooded path, I turn the music off and lower the windows. I want to hear the deer run across the woods, the leaves crunching beneath their black hooves. I want to see the hawk as it glides onto a lower branch, scanning the ground for small creatures. My breath becomes visible inside the car, the pup wimpers; my tires crush the ice with satisfying cracks and I drive on with the frigid silence embedded in my bones.

    1. Me too it reminds me of my first car which didn’t have heaters and windows you had to roll down manually. Had to layer up just to drive with my dog sat in the passenger seat with my coat wrapped round her as we drove off to the middle of nowhere for a good wander through crisp woods 🙂
