Experiences of alone ..........free verse

There are places that were simply meant
for experiences of aloneness
for some it may be an autumnal stroll
through pastels and tall maples
for others a walking path along an old
railroad bed or yet others still
the city Sunday sidewalk

Or for the love of the sea and all her briny offerings
a roaring stone lined surf
or waves of such power
crashing against
gigantic boulders left behind by
prehistoric earth's
shifting shores

Where some find that peace in a
high rocky mountain path
the squeaking leather of a horses cinch strap
against a lathered horse flank
atop mountains of granite
peaks and hanging valleys
of wild flowers in spring

But go there now wherever
that may be for you and you alone
and if we should ever meet there I will
smile at you as we pass each other
with words unspoken
and spells unbroken

I like it. I look forward to an alone hike tomorrow. An old quarry road down a canyon. Thanks for a great poem.
