To Search for that Backcountry

     The spiritual life, in my experience, is a matter
     of moving ever deeper into backcountry,
     both literally and figuratively.
       Belsen C. Lane

I never really spent time in the backcountry,
but I hiked up mountains,sometimes
steep inclines left me breathless 
Perhaps I'll dream of Katahdan tonight
or Old Rag and recall the cadence
of one step after another
as I entered a holy space
