The Beginning

I squint my eyes
Through the bright summer haze
My feet bare
As I walk along a dirt path
In a daze

To my right
I pass an old fountain
Pinpricks of fright
Crawl up my spine
Dry and cracked
The years
Have not been kind

To my left
A teasing glimpse
Of a scene
Bright and green
Light reflecting
From emerald tips

My heart flutters
It skips a beat
As my feet stop walking
I have reached the end
The end
That opens
To the beginning
