Reaching back to 1976, this was written on a Cal Hiking Club (UC Berkeley) trip into the Mokelumne Wilderness, following a series of now long-dead remote wilderness Gold Rush ghost towns. In every case, there is no more 'town' left; one has to be some sort of archeologist to even find what passes for ruins and remains of these old 1849 gold camps.





 

Somewhere in my sleep


Tapping,

bumping gently,

outside on the slope

ghostly images

shine in the moonlight.

I wake to hear

the snowflakes beat

upon my 5 AM tent fly,

whispering urgently

soto vocce

of the morning

coming down

the mountain amidst

arboreal spectres.

-------------------

(1976, Mokelumne Wilderness, Sierra Nevada Range)
