Our Pledge

The Mountains feel

love eternal,

 

Blessed are the valleys

for here we dwell,

 

Call out to the heavens

the stars and the sky as one

 

Contentment awards those

strong of body and mind

they who seek the truth

of life eternal,

 

We, who seek out life’s dreams

fulfill love’s commitments,

and seek the pathway through time,

We are one with Life….

Fluid Emotions

Fluid Emotions

ripples through time

blow gentle breezes

blow through my mind,

 

Cloudburst intentions

scatter like rain

enriching my pastimes,

or drowning my pain,

 

Silently stalking

rumors and myths

encountering dream lands,

close scrutiny had missed,

 

Sight sees, hands grasp

My mind merges with today

Thoughts 1977

Strange, it seems

to live, to love

to dream dreams,

 

Stranger yet

my mind withdraws

my heart forgets,

 

Strangers, we are

lost in life’s mist,

 

That’s stranger by far…

Time Away

From the peaks fell the stones

into basins abyss

Their callings of anguish

echoed true – the last kiss

 

I read the words written

the sun lost to time

was fading so quietly

as my thoughts lost their wine

 

Embattled for ages lost

their armor need not rust

the ramparts graze the loft sky

In salvation, we put our trust

 

Observations, whispered tunes

feelings time forgot

The High Sierra goes to sleep

and I will savor that thought


3 September 1977 Split Mountain., High Sierra California
