Cascade Trail

_____________________________________

The trail transforms from hard to soft

Looking up the sky is needled

Below my feet a tan carpet

*

Moss covers rocks like a carpet

Ferns make eroded stream bank soft

Pine cones dot a trail that’s needled

*

Shoulders brushed by branches needled

Hiking boots scuff up new carpet

All the green and tan make sounds soft

*

I tread on soft, needled, carpet
