Crimson Warmth

Vague log cabins speckle the yawning valley
against the rapture of majestic mountains.
Narrow pathway snakes up the range,
gooseberry shrubs colour the sides
of the stony trail that leaves me cold.

Squinting against the dead sun
chilly winds dampen my spirits
and leave my hair cold and white.
