My iPhone gave me a gift today! It created a photo memory of trips to Blowing Rock, a place Marianne and I loved to visit. Since then I’ve made a number of trips there by myself and written some poems there. “The Other Hiker” is one of them. Enjoy the video and poem. Happy holidays!
The Other Hiker I have walked these trails with my beloved Now I walk them alone I have cried many tears I miss you so very much. Today I neared the top of my hike I heard the sound of movement Was it another hiker? The sound was too faint Then I saw him! A squirrel bounding up the mountainside I smiled and I no longer Felt quite so alone.
