A Wilder Life



Trail blazing kids, motorcycle fake skids
grand canyon switchback shortcuts
downhill gravity danger less guts
facing rams, climbing trees
rams ramming trees, buckling knees
raccoons feasting on a pick nick table
smarter rascals, opening packages able
winter cardboard, sledding down
tree placements ahead, steering around
trails leading, feet sores bleeding
Johnny apple-seed stories seeding
logger's trucks narrow dirt roads
child's fascination hauling timber loads
names, mountain tops, drop in a box
traversing landscape dirt and snow
moving through wonderland, really slow
occasional bears, meadows and moose
bears opening coolers, wildlife on the loose
fishing down a river to a lake
hitchhiking snow falling, catching retake
