into the mountains

getting there

there’s so much between there and here--
all the planning and driving,
the sheer clutter that time and logistics put between us 
and losing ourselves in the beauty of the mountains,

here, Big Creek clearly jostles and tumbles and roars white,

again I am struck by how much constancy of place
can contrast with water’s race to change,

the earth herself pulls the water down
and the water mesmerizes us as it laughingly obeys.
