Up the Mtn, Again #248

fleeting warmth

autumn's hush ...  stillness

interim's season

airs still ... pregnant with change

moonlit ... shaded with coolness

that scent?

Chrysanthemums!  and ...

a cool autumn breeze

infused in steam

off a bowl of barley soup

Up the Mtn, Again! #211

suns laying down

wisping winds  - misting waters 

about valley floors

coolness, descends in shadows

full moons    colossal nights

Up the Mtn, Again! #238

nature's nite light

moonbeams piercing windows

woodstoves dimming heat

time to stoke the fire

one last time before I sleep

Up the Mtn, Again! #227


I know warmth awaits me

beyond this numbness

whether indoors by the fire

or sitting by this tree ...

thunderous booming

piercing crackles   lightning

swollen, pregnant clouds

birthed on a mtn side

divine intuition

deep in the forest

my hovel      my hermitage

healing seclusion

natures divinity

continues on and on ... and on

Up the Mountain, Again! #164

clouds drooling

saturating top soil

woodland roots feasting

ferns n' firs focused downwards

rainstorms cooconed in root balls

Up the Mtn, Again!

ah!       by the fire

ah!       see, the mountains

ah!       fullmoon      peace

Up the Mtn, Again! #154

"Last Night"

fullmoon,    Cool night

moonbeams, soft, fluid shadows

Magic!  aglow

pure bough filtered moonlight

f or ml  E ss.      soothing, tranquil, whisps

Up the Mtn, Again #149


washing over me

swaying trees

Up the Mtn, Again! #148

fall autumns

Beyond coloured foliage

- faint sheets of rain

(Inspired by Robert Wright''s work below)

In the summer haze:

Behind Magnolias

Faint sheets of lightning.

Up the Mtn, Again! #142

distant thunder ?

storm Up the Mtn?   Soon?

trunks sway, boughs bend

winds howl n' scream      FLASH!

lightning, signaling - Calm reigns
