el capitan

mountainous tops peaking

cresting above carpets of scarlet

drinking in the sun

where winds channel your dream

beyond babbling brooks

that hitched a ride between the clouds

where taunts of

el capitan

el capitan,

he’s waiting for you

drift upon an eagle’s wing

                      ….i sit,

among the junipers, those old souls

pretending for a while you are there

til i cry

til i remember why

it is here

here is where your ashes are meant to fly

                     ….i climb

among the junipers, they know your soul

already calling to you

already letting go

i whisper back

promise you won’t let me fall
