“Out for a walk”

Inspiration

 

Cecilia Driscoll

Response

“Wood Pause”

in a mountain wood

i learned to love the road

pavement leading surely home

along the golden vanishing

i learned to love the road

its dusty graveled verges

in the golden vanishing

safe from sudden steel speed

its dusty graveled verges

crumble walks in leaves and grass

safe from sudden steel speed

through the turning season

crumble walks in leaves and grass

old growth’s solid comfort

through the turning season

gaze is drawn above, away

old growth’s solid comfort

deep roots, long shadow

gaze is drawn above, away

beyond the moment’s stillness

deep roots, long shadow

pavement leading surely home

beyond the moment’s stillness

in a mountain wood

    Lovely pantoum, Cecilia. It works so well here! Jane, your fall walk image captures the ending of the day and the ending of fall. Great pairing!

    Both the image and the words transported me to my memories of being in such locations and made me long to be there once again. Beautiful work ladies!
