A view of mist
to first leg of the trail.
Pale-faced and still, he watches her
pack provisions for their trip–
his first hiking experience.
Tense though he is, he has to
cross this particular bridge.
Look at her. Her face shines
radiance. She is exhilarated,
filled with certainty that he
will enjoy sky, cool breezes,
and scent of pine needles
clinging to moist soil. Her trim,
muscular body serves to expedite
his anxiety about his lack
of fitness, although she has
witnessed his body in its natural
state, and continued to date him.
Look, she says, fog is lifting.
This will be a perfect day.
As she takes his hand, he decides
she is right. The fog has lifted.
