Beside you all the time

At first glance
you might assume
a sunrise in the desert --
that rosy glow,
the sweep of light,
those mountains in the distance...
and yet I tell you
here and now
it's just a truck
waiting in the line beside me.
You thought --
or perhaps it was I who thought --
you could only find such beauty
in the desert.
but guess what!
It was here beside you all the time...
