Default Escape


She runs as fast as she can
Down the rugged grade to the flats below
Around the stones forgotten, left behind by time
Marking her way she rings out music
Not music of man but of nature
She dashes to and fro jumping for joy at her freedom
The canopy of green provides rest from the sun
And she roars ever more as the grade increases
She is a grand ole lady full of life
Rushing ahead as though someone awaits
at the end of her journey, yet no one is there
She carries within her a world of life
They take from her all they need
And give back only their own no more
Insects, crustaceans, and trout call her home
I sit by her side, listen and admire
I play in her pools fooling her trout
She gives me peace, an escape from life.
