Across the Cornfields

For me, my introduction to the DTLA Running Group and committed running, began with 'the Dipper'. It is a straight dip down from Pershing Square to the cornfields near the Los Angeles Historic Park. Away from the city, on soft ground and with quite a view, the run has plenty to offer:

Far across the cornfields I go
Little twigs nipping under my feet

The Cornfields, 2015.

While my heart is at home
Underneath a road so steep
Surrounded by fog's mask
But up to the task.
Can't remember when it was dark
When the sun came up
A folded pocket somewhere
Holding your stories close
Ghosts they reappear
In mountains stacked with fear
Said I could not get anywhere
Though far away
We are still the same
Beyond the blind jungle
Signature of a rainbow
My heart is at home.
