High Sierra Route Sunset


Bag Nights


Laying atop a tall mountain gazing up at the stars

Hearing  breezes and night sounds near and far


The day has been hard and though quite long

I feel fulfilled and fear nothing wrong


Thoughts wander back to dainty flowers underfoot

And how carefully I wove thru them avoiding each with my boot


And about the steep trail leading up to the pass

Then over the top,  views disappearing woefully fast


The dip in the lake,   the clouds overhead

All these thoughts fly by while I’m snuggled in bed


The eves gentle breezes sough across my cool face

Thoughts becoming wispy,  becoming spotty as lace


All the days exertions of body and mind

Finally allow me to slowly,  slowly unwind


And before I even know it,  I’ve drifted far far away

Slumbering peacefully on til the sun’s rays overhead announce the new day.
