Three Days In

Hiking Into Light

Three days in —
I breathe pines’ tart air,
stare into a valleys’ depth,
listen to sparrows and finches,
feel the touch and the chill
flow of waters and wind,
and tread on hushed layers
of yielding needles
beneath my pilgrim feet.
I breathe in each moment,
glad to lose at last
the chattering beast
who has tracked me
into the wilderness
hunting answers.
