Picture of the Day

February 13, 2016


missed opportunity
Do you see the horses?

They were so big up close
but receded in the distance.
As the riders passed I asked
if I could put my 46-lb bag
on the back of their pack
animal but they just laughed.

               As if I were joking.

I was a little worried about
the long downhill hike
with so much weight on me.
In Seattle recently I hurt my knees
after a long toddle downtown.
Must have been the shoes
and unforgiving concrete.

Yeah, my legs grew sore after we
finally stopped at Kapalaoa cabin.

Maybe I should've just kept on...
