death’s faint, beautiful music

shasta

The other day we climbed up a thousand feet to an alpine lake from another lake

as the sun gave its leave

to the snow and ice covered ground.

My wife and I,

each of us listening to death’s faint, beautiful music,

tracing over the footprints of a couple who made the same modest journey

a few hours before.
