at 4,665 feet

the rocks smell of rain,
and somehow too
of growing things that cling
to cracks and grooves

I imagine, when breaking
needles of spruce into cider,
this must be the scent
of wild-some joy

    1. Yes, it’s in the central Cascades on the way up to Rachel Lake. Which is at 4,665 feet above sea level. Spent two blissful nights up there in awful weather. But we just call that “adventure” around here. 🙂
