A snowy hike below Bear Peak [Boulder, CO]

The trails got deep into my soul today, and wove this little poem through my head as I hiked.

Into the snowy wood

A path of white beneath my feet

Fairy dust falling from the branches of the pines that salute Bear Peak

A flood of bright sunlight glazes the forest

A last uphill push

Before the path wanders back down

The silence broken only by the caw of a bird

And the crunch, crunch as my feet sink into the ski-worn path below my boots

A snowy hike below Bear Peak [Boulder, CO]
