Up...

UP...

Her long legs stretched and moved
striding toward the hill
striding toward life...

Her eye caught the red buds

high
higher
highest

in the branches.

She craned her neck and squinted her eyes
so bright
blood red.

And she thought,
just for a second
that all the bare branches on the bottom
always lead to something better
if you just keep looking up.
