November 12, 2011- Small Stones
ascent by Teri H Hoover
On the trail today I was sure no observations would arise to be observed~I was wrong.
Two faceless runners; back lit by the sun
low in the autumn sky.
Powerful strides synchronized and elegant.
Magnificent Clydesdale silhouettes-
Remembering to breath as they pass by.
I turn my head
to follow their effortless ascent.
The sun warming shirtless brown skin.
