Long, black flatness of the plains,

Gray, pint, violet, and gold of dawn,

Huge round orange of sun

Rising higher in the sky.

What’s that I see in the distance?

A mirage of mountains after all the flatness?

An image culled from my childhood?



Till I am sure…

Fantastic Rockies burst upon my consciousness!


Nor hope to convey your immensity.

Larger than any mountain of the past.

I wish to have been the first ever to see you.

Yet, I am.

No one has ever experienced

Tangled unfathomable emotions,

Rising in my heart and soul,

At the sight of you!
