Rambling Woman Returns

Assateague MD

Written out
Wrung out
 Running away

Rockfish Gap, VA

Stripping life down
 to bare-limbed essentials
 immersed in wilderness
 bodysurfing in solitude

Percussive beats mark time
 wings on air
Assateague Beach

 paddles in water
Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge

  leaves crumpling under trail boots  
Appalachian Trail

 Sleeping to sea song
Waking to wild stallion's whinny

Assateague Campground

 Lowering dipper
 sipping days slow
 drinking deep from the creative well

John D. MacArthur State Park, FL

 ~~~ I've been rambling--from mountains, to islands, to Florida Coast. And for all that I love a good adventure, it's good to be home. This post written as contribution to G-Mans Friday Flash 55. Drop by to see what others wrote or to join the fun yourself.
