finding a pass among the green mountains

finding a pass among the green mountains
kit kelen

the mountain is strong
but the horse is weak

the horse is walking
the mountain towers

I must raise the bridle
nine times in ten steps

east, west? I’m going in circles

water in the stream
now rain
the cliff is dark with mist

clothes billow and sway in the storm
kudzu flowers wither, fall

light gone, at last alone
day’s journey done
