Walking in Snow and Ice

I went for a walk today. I am sore all over, but it was good to go. I need to go more often.

Imagine the snow is just deep enough to swallow your feet whole. The ice on top is just hard enough that you have to push your way through on each step. There is impact when your feet hit the ground. It makes the knees ache.

Snow clomp. Stomp, stomp.

It hurts my knees.

It shakes my bones.

Snow clomp. Stomp, stomp.

My feet are cold.

I’m feeling old.

This was my hiking song today. I had to stop often to catch my breath. My heart was beating uncomfortably fast. I am out of shape. But it was worth it to listen to the wind blowing through the trees. It is a good sound.
