A Postcard, Personally Delivered

number one son
far away
after working
and trekking
mountains, rivers, valleys,
streams and glaciers

that reminded him
of his favorite
opening scene
"The Last Mohigan"

but not in that
well south

though started
in a cabin
by a lake
in Rhode Island

just before
a knock
on the door

a postcard
personally delivered
by a childhood friend
who hiked with him
for the last few weeks
and just came home

but we'll have to wait longer
for a hug
