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
