Memories of the Pemi Trail and Basin

We were here before –

And our hair was longer then,

blown back in the mist.

Unattainable.

Like blurred rushing ice water,

Past my fingertips.

I stood in this pool,

Waiting for you to see me,

Once upon a time.

All of the old days,

Pounding hearts and brewing smiles,

Left in the Basin.

We’ll wander up then –

To see the blue sky again,

And remember us.

Something familiar,

Like a rock that never moves,

I have found your heart.

Let the river swell.

We will stand, side by side here,

And spring from the rush.

Or just quietly,

Fall to pieces together,

Under the cool stream.
