Hiking 1

We start together.
She is the tortoise
To my groundhog.
No hares in this event.

Jody at Ramapo July 2013

A stop at the kiosk;
Check the map;
Orange trail, red trail,
Time for a drink.

Orange trail, blue trail,
Sandwiches, fruit,
Another drink
Keep us going on.

Going on to see,
Encounter, marvel.
A big buck,
A tiny toad.


A flash of blue;
A bunting?
Cascades and rivulets
From last night’s rain.

We have not
A timetable to follow.
No need to risk
More titanium plates and screws.

Miles later,
Wide and paved with gravel,
The silver trail.
We finish together.
