Walking the Trail



2019 May 24 Walnut Woods and Chestnut Ridge 038.JPG

Walking along an unknown, isolated trail

Hoping that this journey goes without fail


Watching skyward for some warm fun

Hiding behind clouds, escapes the sun


Hurrying along the narrow path against the windy cold

Seeking to not find too much adventure—yet be bold!


Traveling quickly, the brisk pace advances along

Thinking this morning hike, nothing can go wrong


Turning a corner, approaching a different place

Seeing a fork coming up and slowing the pace


Searching the mysterious routes of twin solitary trails

Feeling confidence slipping, suspense tips the scales


Deciding to journey down the unfamiliar path on the right

Adjusting the trip’s rhythm, accepting challenges in sight


Moving along another route, sometimes part of life

Aligning conflicting thoughts, without further strife


Finishing this satisfying walk, never feeling ready to fail

Realizing life’s unique treks, resemble being on this trail
