Coming down
clear minded
through primitive property
where wind and weather
cover each other's footsteps

Sentinels make the Cathedral
tops sheared off
by countless strikes
I'm coming down
from High Country lakes

To stop along the trail
loosen my load
and look back
is to reflect on
another page in this life

Sun rise and set
two Wolves drinking
Raptors endless spiral
Midnight sky, the Universal show
The welling of excitement
Fish and Fly
BOOM!

Rumble and billow
west zephyr rushes up the slope
I leave with understanding, knowledge
left shoulder to the breeze

Sitting in the truck
Ten, breaktime, asphalt tangle
The minds eye turns
once again, up the trail

Soaking up the memories
of those lofty places
Where......Surley!
The Spirit casts His line
with a gleam of hope
in His eye!

I was never much on poetry, just what I needed to get thru school. This rings clear to me and strikes close to my soul, bravo!!!

Thanks Deerhaawk I needed that. My morning got off to an awful start but I've suddenly been reminded of bigger things that make me smile.
