TRAIL MIX
ON THE TRAIL

It’s been a long walk
to get here
I wonder
where along the way
did I pick up
these wrinkles?
Where did I lose
that girlish giggle?
Where did that young woman go
that used to do cartwheels
and when did these knees
begin to complain?
How did all the books
I stuffed inside my head
get forgotten?
When did I stop wishing
and start accepting?

The trail winds around forever
yet it seems like I began this hike
just a second ago
I used to be so impatient
to move on
Now, I’m looking for a place to sit
while I contemplate this journey
