Wildness

There was a certain wildness in her hair, yet she really loved the gentleness of his strength. They met that first day on the same trail from the opposite directions, with diverging angles. He noticed her boots, they were much better than his, and she noticed the brightness of his smile. He said as they got closer, “No masks!”.

She chuckled and they talked for a while, sitting on some logs. They talked some more, and then some more, and they did what many young lovers do, even on their first date…..

they had lunch.

Crackers and cheese, with apples, and bottled water. They did finish that trail, and many more after that, yet together. The last I heard she still does not have control of her hair…..and to be honest…..that’s just fine with him.

  1. WILD-NESS of hair with even more “WILDER” things on the trail. What gripped me the most was the comment, “No Masks” (mutually shared of course by the couple). This purely indicates the liberty taken amongst the wooded trail during this private get away in nature. WILDNESS truly implies “do what comes naturally” –which of course they do and then some! Looking for more rivers to cross!
