“Up North”: Chilean Style

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

{Last weekend, seven other souls accompanied me

To this beautiful place – it felt so magical, so free

We arrived in the darkness, an easy journey not quite

But as soon as we saw the stars (and white van) we were filled with delight

Upon entering the cabin, I was pleasantly surprised

how incredibly similar to Northern Michigan, a place more perfect I could not have devised

Waking up to the sound of the river and the sight of the trees

Oh, can I stay here forever, if I say please?

With the sun overhead and not a plan for the day,

We simply walked and talked and made our way

To a beautiful green field that magically appeared

amongst the still sleeping winter forest, how weird.

With the mountains in the background we frolicked and played

and I wish the feelings of that day could forever stay

Everything so simple – crisp and clean and steady

Feeling prepared, however unwilling, yet ready

With a clear mind and a focused heart

Thankful for this weekend and those who took part.}
