Granite bowl. Soaring
cliffs. Magic under water.
If only it flowed.

Undulating hills
Green and granite abundant
Ozark hike in spring

A distant rumbling
Flashes change night into day
Electric evening

A silent landing,
quilt of unique perfection,
glistening petals.

Granite veins flow through
Seams of pine, washing away
My city worries

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Pull, toss, pull, toss, pull.
A meditative rhythm.
Away, cursed weeds!


Sunset walk around
swampy lake. Dandelion
seeds decorate webs.

Simpson Lake paddle
Windless, cloudyish, so green.
Missouri summer.

Eight-foot sunflowers
Vines collapsing their cages
Verdant vegetables

Day of crying skies.
No swim camp means cranky kids.
Wish I could send moisture west.

Missing longtime friends
Wilting in the soupy air
Good time to paddle

Not sure which I'll miss
more : the mountains or my friends
Both so beautiful

Serenity now
At sunset in the moonlight.
Love. Beauty. Baileys.

Morning on the trail
Afternoon paddleboarding;
A perfect schedule

Beauty in lake form
Boulders, trees, peaks and storm clouds
Clear waves rippling

Spotting a rainbow
From a majestic vista
Making memories
