I like the how the trees
make tunnels of green
green leaves
in the summer-
arching over country roads.

How the leaves allow
sunlight to filter through
and leave patterns
on the pavement.

I like driving here
on sunny afternoons
with the windows down,
feeling the wind
dance through my fingertips.

And when I think about leaving this place
and moving on to bigger
and greater things,
this is one of the only things
I think about missing.
