Buckland Gap to Stanley walk: rising – mountain into crow

(not seventeen syllables, I know …)

IMG20180321100005

the gentle slope
goes on

rising

somehow
becomes
a mountain

a pack rides
snug
upon his back

nostrils are filled
with the scent
of eucalyptus

a crow croaks

arrrggghhh arrrggghhh

at this foolishness

one trudge

and then
another

somewhere
Stanley
must be

above
