[Poem a Day] “All Those Old Hiking Trails”

Check out today’s post on Instagram. 

Words carved into trees are their own kind of poetry. They have the same connective quality – we don’t quite know who put them there, why – but we do get a glimpse of maybe when, and sometimes even a handful of words that might hint at why. It’s enough to start putting together just a vague silhouette of what that day might have looked like – enough for our heads to start filling in the gaps.

True or not, we can feel something behind those etched letters.
