Nelson Lakes – A long day (33)

Today walking
As if powered
By the energy of
Mountains around and
West Sabine River
Alongside us
Feeding the
Elemental in me

Not tiring
The pack no burden
A thickly folded
Hoodie around my
Disappearing waist
Belt pressure
On bony hips

Once again
Limitless beauty all around
An easy enough trail
Today feeling
Like I can walk

Walking past West Sabine Hut
And on to the next one
Where we can just
Get a glimpse
Of the wondrous
Blue Lake
At dusk

The need to
Attend to the usual
And necessary
Hut arrival routine
Now focused on
And sleeping

Sleep is elusive
Whole being
Alive and zinging
