NaPoWriMo Day 2: Thinking of Snow

From an Empty Office in Winter

The day slipping down to slow motion
a blanket statement of snow
barely a whisper under this winter sun

All light and no heat
A smile that doesn’t reach the eyes

No matter the season, whether winter, spring, summer or fall, Koreans like to hike. It was my first time to hike a snow mountain so I didn’t know what to expect. After 5 hours of walking up and down the several mountains of hambaek in gangwondo, we were able to finish the hike but not without challenge. Early on, I got blisters on my feet so it was difficult to walk and there were times when I felt like quitting but seeing the Koreans hike like it was a walk in a park, I just have to continue and finish the hike. Easily one of the best and memorable hike i have ever done.
