The steep bank

at the end of a trail

left us with our 

only option, and so

we stood, gazed

out upon the gentle

waters, took time

to consider the beauty

of a moment before

turning back, retreading,

impressing our steps

further into soil, joy-

filled by the notion 

we had forged our part

of a path others had

worn-down for us,

our steps enhancing

a marker for more

who will come, continue

an exploration of this

place on this good earth—

*tutti i passi che 

ho fatto nella 

mia vita mi hanno 

portato qui, ora.
