Daily Tanka: On Driving up North

On Driving up North, v. 1

Fir, pine, spruce, cedar
Canyon a narrow blacktop
River that allows
Cars to sail through the northwoods
Between the small lonely towns

On Driving up North, v. 2
I’ve sailed cars over
Thousands of miles of blacktop
Rivers running down 
Evergreen canyons to towns
Clinging to the roads’ edges
