99 Words #3 – Rear View Mirror (aka B is for Behind)

I’m driving down a lonely rural road.  A raven flies across the harsh glare of the sun still low on the horizon.

I look forward to see something on the road ahead.  As I get closer the form takes shape.  It’s a rearview mirror.

Was someone trying to escape the past?  Did they no longer want to see the terrible things said that made a friend cry, or the act of a loved one that broke their heart?

Maybe they were afraid of what was coming back to find them?  Sometimes this can be the worst thing of all.
