Thru Haiku - Colorado Trail

CO Trail Thru Hiking Inspired Haiku

By Christine ReedPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

Miles pass beneath me

Dirt, sand, stone, dust, mud, sludge, duff

Feet press into earth


Streams run through mountains

I collect, filter, cherish

Water from the source


Walking through scarred land

Tree skeletons cast no shade

Fire has changed this place


Nearing the top now

Wind blows sideways against me

I lean into it
