Gorgeous! Don't miss the super moon tomorrow night at 9 p.m. Would love to see a pic of that over your view.

That view, coupled with absolute silence must be amazing.

The Surface Tension of Pago Treanth

I badly confused
the high hill
for the mirrored lake below.

I hopelessly loved in a
strong intemperate manner
without happiness.

I wandered right and
veered left under and over
irregular surface formations.

I sank when
I saw no land
that made a shoreline.

I washed up
under blue beach glass
admiring a mackerel sky
speckled with the pacific evening's
equable celestial signs.

That's a beautiful poem, A14MS. Did you write it? I Googled the title but found nothing. If you did write it, may I have your permission to share it with some friends?

AI4MS said...

Thank you very much. Feel free to share the thought. I wrote it last year as a prayer for my son in
Afghanistan but when I saw the picture John posted yesterday I knew that was exactly where it belonged.

Thank you very much for the kind thoughts.

I'll definitely share it, and will of course credit you as the author. The circumstances that led to the poem are especially poignant to me as I spent some months in Afghanistan also. That was long ago (late 70s early 80s) when the US was backing the Mujahidin/Taliban against the Soviet Union. It seems that humanity is indeed doomed to repeat history.
