In Woods

In Woods

On a well-beaten
Yet abandoned trail
Grow ferns and flowers
Underneath fallen branches

A sloped copse
Uniformly forsaken
By the trees that have fallen
Across its ancient dirt path

Over a waterfall
On a steep slope
Feet getting wet
In the angled creek bed

Shivering in the shade
Legs shaking
In the alpine
Almost can’t find

Sloped degrees
Sitting by
Waterfall spray
So freezing
