A Cold Rainy Day

It’s funny how love becomes
A cold rainy day
Its funny,
That rainy day
Is here
-Frank Sinatra

Sitting this morning

On the Trailways bus,

winding our way

Down to Boston’s Logan Airport

In the early morning rain.
I lay my head down
and gaze out the window,
soaking in the misty woods.

Time flips back a year
and I am now walking
on a high exploding flowering
ridge in North Carolina,
on that cold
day when I backpacked
Eighteen miles in the rain.
That day
Is now a shimmering memory,
all the hurt gone.

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".
