This Wasn’t in the Brochure—Stream of Consciousness Saturday

How?! How do you expect me to do this?

I mean, I get it. Some people thrive on

This kind of challenge. But this a

Vertical rock face, and I am out of

Shape. You told me we were going on a

Hike through the canyon. You did not tell me

That I was going to have to be some

Kind of daredevil if I don’t want to

Have to hike the three miles

Back along the creek to the car.


I wrote this poem following Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt ‘how.’ If you would like to read more about her challenge, check out her sight here:

  1. Your poem reminded me of the time I spent last fall with my brother, in Colorado. We had way too many “hikes” of three miles or longer, that included climbing, of course. Nice response to the prompt!

    1. This was something that happened to me about 20 years ago, and I did make it up the wall. It wasn’t easy, but the alternative would have me jumping back and forth across the creek on the top of slick boulders. And I had already fallen in the creek two or three times. lol 😀
