November hike

I wake before the wrens
so that I can hike
alone up the rise
and watch the gold
of new light arrive

and each time
there is a pleasure
in its crunching
beneath my feet like
bright, brittle ice

    1. 🙂 Are we not ready for November yet? The picture was taken November last year on a hike – the same one that I will be doing this weekend (which will also be November). I’ll hike up there and make myself a nice, hot cup of coffee on my backpacking stove. Nothing like it!
