mindful climbing

"Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience." -Psychology Today

hiking among trees
rustling in hot wind
with dirt folding
into the bends of my arms &
behind my knees
I feel the muscles 
of my thighs 
rise, rise, rise
