A trail, upward

A trail, upward
rocky without green
trail of stone and slate
leading through outcroppings
of stone and slate and
the overhang of trees higher up
winding a way past clouds
into the horizon of bright blue

at the top, partially, clouds
eventually part to reveal
what’s behind: the vision
of a trail leading downward
toward the beginning.
