Hillside and Rock Face

gray granite rock face
across a treed hillside

something seems to call
i know it looks like home

in these unknown places
i know dangers lurk

maybe bears and panthers
are among those trees
could be anywhere

thoughts of going out 
into that wild forest

call out to something
quietly wild inside me  

something that wants me to 
to walk through the trees
over to the rock face

and climb it if it looks
nearly impossible

some kind of challenge
(ignoring all the possible
bears and panthers)
