Conquering came in measured steps
in a mountain hamlet on a dusty road.
Victory savored autumn’s best
with no regrets with my daughter’s presence.
Hope overcame a pain filled past.
Each step afforded a new adventure
measured in laughter and adventurous joy.
Triumph lifted this hopeful heart
and washed away the past
that kept me imprisoned in darkness
when I dreamed of freedom
in carefree motion
as I took each stride for granted.
Today bequeathed a love offering
a sense of renewal
a timeless remembrance.
Rejoicing in the simplest pleasures
breathing in the pine filled air
and sauntering among mountain beauty.
I know I am behind, but this weekend I enjoyed a mountain get-away with my daughter. And wifi in the mountains was hit and miss. Yesterday’s adventure gave me such a sense of peace and joy. We glimpsed falls colors among mountain ghost towns. And today, I walked without a constant companion – chronic pain. And I was blessed with this gift of enjoying my day with only child, my daughter, Leslie.
Day 6 was all about conquering, which was the perfect topic for a glorious day!
