How Did We Get Here

by laurie howland

How did we get here
Was it by train
Or a slow walk
I can’t recall


How did we decide
Which fork to take
Which turn to make
Which bridge to cross


How did we swim
The rough waters
The turbulent seas
With the darkness of night


How did we wade
Through the overflowing rivers
And waters that flooded


How did we traverse
The paths that were steep
Appearing impossible to climb
With boulders that rocked
And ledges that dropped


How did we get here
But here we are
And the forest is vast
The fields abundant
The seas calm
And natures colors are vibrant


How did we get here
A place that takes our breath away
A beauty that shines with every sunrise
And rest with every sunset
How did we get here
I cannot recall
But I like being here
