up and over mountains of love
and of pain
through fields of metaphors
and valleys of symbolism
of body and mind
and of the love manifesting
your shadow and mine

Twitter #vss365 prompt words used: hike, explore, minimal, balance. Follow me on Twitter here, and on Instagram here.
I wrote two poems with the word prompts from Twitter this week. Here is the second one.
I explore the depths
of the wind
and the space that lives in between
this moment and the next
a balance of learning
and of unlearning
are drawn together
like a bow
the shadow of words
left behind to sow
We are at that time of year in the Pacific Northwest when the hiking trails begin to dry out, and hiking becomes something that I will take part in each week. For those of you who’ve followed me for years, you know how much I love to be out in the forest and at the coast, two of my favorite places, regardless of where I am living and or visiting.
Here are some pics from my first short hike of the season.
For those of you celebrating Easter, Happy Easter, for those celebrating Ramadan, Ramadan Mubarak, and for all of you, may your day, and week be peaceful, and full of love.
