a three-egg sandwich

with bacon and cheddar 

amassed in my stomach   

            *** 

eight inches of snow on trail

already traveled by hikers,

mountain bikers and paws   

          *** 

warm sun and blue sky

naked trees stretching

to reach the birdsongs   

          ***

snowshoes strapped on

trekking poles in hand

a quick gulp of water   

          *** 

step into the winter

forest wearing its

finest seasonal dress   

          *** 

heart rate increases

cares slip away

while finding flow
