Easter Appalachian Trail Run  4/4/10

– By Don Vining

Arising, arising, arising

Lofty perch for miles and miles

Lower than clouds, higher than graves

Lover of trails and private treasures

Trickling cold streams

Soothing spring sun

A mountain commander

Speaking without words

Soaring without flying

Singing without music

Beauty without flowers

Poetry without books

Birthing without pain

And time…

Time to be alive

That was enough.
