my compass

Saturday, North

Through the canyon, to the frozen slopes

for a snow-filled ski day

and fresh mountain air


Thursday, East

Up the side of Y mountain on foot

switchback after switchback with a buddy on my back

just to see the view


Friday, West

On a bike to the lake

To sit on a dock and watch the water

Silent but for the birds and insects


Next week, South

Through the dessert, to the coast

To say hi to the ocean, the sand,

and the California palm trees
