Guest Barista Varnika Jain/The Road Ahead

There’s a road,

In the middle of nowhere

With nary an end in sight.

It stretches on straight

For hundreds of miles

So, baby, hold on tight.

There’s a red car,

Moving on this highway.

A Chevy, with its hood turned down.

A straw hat lies astray

On its passenger side

With a cat curled around.

A rugged, leather suitcase,

Carelessly thrown together,

Sprawls across the backseat,

And peeking out from between its flaps

Is a perfectly cosy, knitted sweater.

The sun shines strongly

Showing the way, lit, ahead.

Its rays played tricks on the mind,

As mirages appeared and fled.

There’s a wind in my hair

And it’s whispering my name.

Are you with me on this journey still?

‘Cause I have no clue where this goes

Nor from whence upon it I came.


Varnika Jain is prone to having verbal epiphanies in the midst of all the cacophony surrounding her life.  She is a voracious reader, vociferous eater and a vehemently passionate writer. You can read more of her writing at Moonlighting Scrivener where you can find her changing the world, one word at a time.
