Alley Life

A run, delightful. Feet touching the earth
along the river trail.
The old Milwaukee line and older yet Salish-Kootenay and Blackfoot trails.
Trails of deer, rabbits, fox, coyote, bear
Trails of hummingbirds and heron and eagle, ospree and crow.

The snow has settled in but not yet covering everything
So that so so many yellows. The tips of the grasses a silvery white
the stalks a pure yellow
But then you see the orange yellows, the red yellows, the red-oranges.
And the browns, the dark ones deeper in off the trail.

Quiet. When I get back I make a cup of coffee and sip.
Why did I not stay in that cabin at the end of the trail ?
