A poem about winter morning journeys.

Cross Country Skiing; Zero Degrees


Frigid fingertips and toes

Almost unbearable pain

Keep moving forward


Meandering through unknown

Following someone else's tracks

Keep moving forward


Unexpected Intersections and curves

Interrupt my route

Keep moving forward


Icy air persists,

Sun struggles

Keep moving forward


Winter morning journey

Life journey

Keep moving forward


Time alleviates the pain

Frostbitten air becomes bearable

Keep moving forward


Sun fights and grows

Warmth gives me strength

Keep moving forward


Keep moving forward

Form my own tracks,

Never stop moving forward
