Finding the path
She thought that to be a trail blazer
you had to create an indelible course,
burning signs into the landscape.
Now she knows that the route
can be determined by subtle,
almost imperceptible chips in the bark.
The way ahead will then be there
for those that know what to look for,
those who can notice nuanced clues.
That way the tribe can grow slowly
and also they will get there in their own time.
