El Camino Del Sol

An ancient creek
breathes brand new
Strayed off
far enough
found you
unassuming, child
lived a thousand years
oblivious to the war
the crime
Do you know of time?

Have you heard the news?
What do you say? What’s to come through?

Or do I ask too soon?

Ancient creek
softly, echoing mystery and flowing
Knowing what will come to be
On the trail, I can’t feel my heartbeat
I’m a ghost on the pathway of the sun

El Camino Del Sol
on the way to the John Muir Trail; Yosemite Nat’l Park
