Pilgrimage to Chocorua

20160529_115428

Somehow I return,

I keep looking for something,

Lost on this mountain.

On a somber day,

With a spring chill in the air,

I come up empty.

Fog settling in,

Keeping our eyes from the peak,

We walk blindly on.

Once you held my hand,

To pull me over these rocks,

Dear, sweet memories.

You have caught my heart,

In a rock and a hard place,

For such a long time.

Mt. Percival and Mt. Morgen in Spring

Freshly springing from the trees,

Shivering alive.   dsc04546

Littlest creature,

Resting on the sloped granite,

Where will you go next?

Surprising bold life,

Even on the mountain top,

Never to be stopped.

Sweet and supple buds,

Stretching and yawning awake,

We missed you so much.

Stacked rocking ladders,

Par for the rock climbing course,

And barely a grip.

Growing together,

Like two plump stubborn mushrooms,

I think I like you 😉

No matter how far,

I go from my childhood bed,

These plants take me back.
