SO GLAD I CAME BACK

Breaking out from the trees
to the first vista
where the summit finally opens
and forests spread endlessly
so it seems

only a hint of what’s ahead
and below

~*~

Deep blue Silver
and Ossipee lakes
off to the south

as we gather
maps rippling in stiff wind

~*~

Sloping rock
and then the drop
five hundred feet
where I’m gripping:

I never would have made it
to the pinnacle in snow
after all.

So glad I came back
a month later

to speak of green in the memory
surrounded by words.
