Country Road

CountryRoad

Some of the photography blogs also offer poetry with their photos so as to capture the full artistic experience. So, with that in mind, here is my poetry capturing the moment at 8,500 feet above sea level.

Beauty, trees, winds, gravel road…

Huffing and puffing, winded, really high, gasping for breath,

Camera, shoot, photo, drink cool water… luke warm water… from bottle, not pond, dysentery…

Dog, companion, Baily, labrador, guide, rescue mutt…

Hiking, too high, too long, wind in hair… seize the moment, seize the breath, seizure…

Hyperventilate… sit… rescue mutt, lick, face… wait patiently… leave behind… all alone… rescue mutt gone… descend slowly… more gravel, wind in hair blowing as if its all about me… only the wind doesn’t care… neither does the gravel, altitude, sun bathing and burning my white skin… I could die here and no one would notice… 

Rescue mutt returns… Come on slow poke! I’m 97 years old in dogs years and I’m in better shape than you!

Shut up rescue mutt…
