she says we won’t delicately place our feet so we clear trails

They have laid out the view for us.
Blue mountains and clouds
even pile the stones neatly,
let them become moderately
covered in lichens.

A parking lot is paved before
a hill with thin timbered trees.

Take your time; a trail
rests within itself below, hundred
feet folding the dirt
in on itself over in a
green tunnel in Appalachia– just
to watch a wall of individual
leaf shapes flit and bow in
a bit of water and wind.

All here mentions
if we stretch our legs far enough
the traits we find become trails
in a small place with intrusive
curious bumblebees. It is good
to have some friendly company.

It is good to have preparative
breeze and easy rain.
