Escape at Fires Creek, by Mary Ricketson

ESCAPE AT FIRES CREEK

Welcome to the wilds
where woodpeckers,
hemlocks and river birch
remember me,
where trout lily, trillium,
and dwarf iris
take my breath away,
where I hop across
mossy creek bed rocks,
then lie down
on a cold boulder
and watch Leatherwood Falls
race down the mountain
all evening long.
