taste of red blueberries
smell of pine

scrambling up / running down
Little Mountain trail

hands scrape broken rock
lichens crumble underfoot

& now the wind carries the small, still fffff
of the wind in low grasses;

& beyond that
the wind in trees;

& a crow
deep in the valley

across a swamp

flapping ahead of a truck
climbing up from the town.
