We went camping

We sang our loudest.

We sang many songs.

We only sang the choruses.

We only knew the choruses.

We stopped under the power line.

We carried tents under the trees.

We carried fear in our hearts.

We carried mosquitos under our skin.

We made a s’more.

We want some more from our S’more.

We make a better S’more.

We eat this ultimate S’more.

We walk away from the light.

We face our fears.

We face the clouds.

We face the near.

We didn’t conquer the wet.

We didn’t conquer the night.

We haven’t conquered our fears.

We only conquered the way we thought.

One thought on “We went camping

  1. Nice little litany of your own. At times, your list is reminiscent of a great short story called “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien – about the Vietnam War. Worth reading.
