Winter Travel

Crisp winter morning
High, elongated transport
I depart before dawn
Heading west, southwest

Traveling in darkness
Sun rises slowly over left shoulder
Streaks of yellow, pink and bright white
painting trees orange and red

Cross the ridge
Turn a corner
Race the valley
Face firmly southwest

Traveling now in lighting lightness
Sun rises over long ridge on left
Only shining on my face
and yellow treetops for miles

Cool, wonderful morning
Great, expansive path
I travel on my own
Yet you are here
