“The sky peeled back for a moment,
and a weak ray of sunset spilled over the scene
like the diseased eye of some forgetful god —
the light bearing with it cold in place of heat.” 

― Luis Alberto Urrea, Into the Beautiful North

Time to fly away
Across the clouds, shadows drift
Wind and sun powered.

Fleet at foot
Always on the move
Prince of speed.

Birds announcing a new day
I celebrate life.

My days as a hiking guide
May soon have long since passed
But, for this hiker, the trail never ends.

The call of the trail has not silenced
In the course of the coyote’s song
Echoing down through the canyon.

The pace may have slowed,
Canyon walls gotten steeper
Only to be balanced by desire.

But out there in the canyons
The ghosts of young trail runners
Brings back images for the past.

Casting strides to the wind
Hiking trails that have no end
Chasing trail-dust on the wind.
