Memories of steps taken
are extracted 
from the recesses of my mind
Strung together
in haphazard fashion
I recall the journey taken
as I remember the rocks
beneath my feet
the shapes and colors
I remember the trees
bushy ones here
tall and thin ones there
I remember the lines
on the highway
and the gate I passed through
Long journeys
are made up of small moments
miles of walking
take the sum of many steps
I remember the journey
only as I remember
the moments
I recall the miles
only as I recall the steps
