The Lowest Road

Sunburst Above the Smoke, Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
This road
The peaks
It cleaves
The valley floor
But I
Would climb
Into the sky
If I
Could find
A path
To take me there
But where
No path’s
Been cut
I have not
The will
To blaze
The trail
Up to
The heights
And so am I
To roam
The lowest road
The sun

Sunburst Above the Smoke
Icefields Parkway
Banff National Park
Alberta, Canada
