welcomes me

as I remove my

equipment from

my pack and

begin the

all too familiar

ritual, and


The deepest nerves

buried in marrow

shiver. Focusing,

I force my spirit

to retain my


It guides

my friend as

it races

across the

pages. Spilling

secrets that none

will ever witness

as long as the sky glows

and the sheep

seek and peak

looking to

find my last

bit of sanctuary.
