A memory of hiking in the Lake District, UK

After a long hike.

Water's white noise
tumbles in my ears

The rushing stream
flows like liquid ice.

Stars as brilliant bees
swarm in the hive of night

under a crescent moon
my skin is plated silver

soft silky silt squeezes
up between my toes.

Tired and travel stained
brrr - how could I resist

the bliss of being clean.
