Looking forward to St. Arnaud’s (Day 26)

Just walking,
When the ground
The rocks
The roots
Are dry
And the terrain
Is kind

Legs strong
Feet strong
Even if some
Of the little bones
Are feeling the pressure
Of having laboured
With a load
For 22 days…
Strong, painfree knees
Even on the
Downward slopes

Watching the landscape change
Every step
A different
If only
A slightly
Different angle
Different trees
Rocks, roots, leaves

Time to notice
The clouds;
And let imagination
Run wild
Luxury accommodation
Crisp cotton sheets
And thick white towels
