A lake awakens
Minnows and mountains and clouds
Stillness in motion

Your transience,
like sudden summer thunder
A trail of echoes

Alpine flowers at Upper Hoffer Lake, Blue Mountains, Oregon

Coast Range, winter morning

Not ready to rise
From mountain’s layered embrace
This still-dreaming cloud

Blown and swept away
Mountain’s old bones a refuge

Flinty old-timers arrange themselves into
Fringed frame of pungent needles, then
Swapping their usual rock-strewn stories
Their old sloped shoulders and crooked peaks slide
Haltingly from view
