Only Connect

img_0417A mile upon a mile Only connect

Engaged by light’s fracturing beams through the trees

I stop only to catch my breath and remember

For a moment

Where I am

And where I have been

And the miles become miles

Steepness descends from mountain exposure to wide meadows

And we connect

And engage

Over trampling fires at night

And starry skies

And the light fragments shutter through the tent

And dawn is near

And miles become miles

Trail dust magic

Sweat and memories of ancient regrets

Come and go

Like puddles in the desert

We are solid earth by the end

And we connect

And return to the path we chose

Together, and apart

Single file

And the miles go on and on

And the light captures

Us.
