Pioneer Spirit


Pioneer Spirit

I feel it strongly,
the way you love the layers
left behind, of spring
you have sought among
the rocks astride the old hills
with the changing face
of holy water
in its course.

Sunlit, you stand
in your laced up boots,
buckskin clad, at peace.

"You normally have to be bashed about a bit by life to see the point of daffodils, sunsets and uneventful nice days."
