THE ROAD CLIMBS HIGH ABOVE THE TIMBERLINE

 

 

The road climbs high above the timberline,
Stretching its way among the wildflowers.
In years long passed, it shone as a river
Spiraling to the moon - youthful, bright
- Its course without end beneath the uncertain night.

Now,
As I look back often listening to the voices beneath the rocks,
Echoes of a dried stream bruised by time, beaten by man,
I am again called to you, my love, my home
As a glass of wine beckons to an old Steppenwolf.

Memory riddled with human misery indeed I've seen,
Reflect on paths that could never have been,
Yet still I go and climb and rise
To meet the eagle beneath the sky.
