>to the white-haired lady hiking alkali creek trail

>I envied you

saw you walking
saw you stop

where the path curls
up and over water

you sat down

a measure of grace
a bit of pain

you pulled a letter out

I watched you read
from the canyon’s corner

the way you folded
and stretched out

you taught me ease
in surrender
