Something new and different is ahead
a test of endurance, strength, and will power
The nerves tingle in my belly
What can I do to prepare?
In just another week I’ll be packed,
headed up the mountain to set up my tent
One with nature and all her extremes
Will she be kind to me?
I gather the items in my home
Band-aids, bandanas, and pairs of wool socks
I lay them down gently into piles
Will I have all that I need?
Los Nevados mountains await me
a new part of Colombia I’ll come to know
as it will get to know me too
What lessons will we teach one another?
