Caminata – Lorraine Caputo

Along a narrow trail
            embracing this slope
Into bright sun
            & into patches
            of deep shadow
The smell of warm herbs
            of damp earth
            tumbling springs
Butterflies, dragonflies
            dance on the breeze
            that rustles the
Ferns & vines
            that brush my
            arms, my legs
Distant thunder grumbles
            around these mountains
