“Walking the Path…”: A #writephoto #haibun

waiting

 

Where are you leading me?

 

The mist rolls in. The cold and rain accompanying it envelop me like a fisherman’s expertly cast net. The ascent continues. To where, I don’t know.

 

Only that your whisper, “follow me,” drives me onward.

 

But the climb besieges me. I think of the colleague and friend I just lost. I remember our last beer together, our last word exchanged in his classroom. Why him, when he was one of the best of us?

 

Nevertheless, there you wait. Again, I hear your whisper, “follow me.”

 

And so I do. By placing one foot in front of the other. Then doing it again, and again. Always, one step at a time.
