Poem – Untitled

Amidst the blue sky
random numbers emerge
from the horizon, enlarging
and blocking out the sun
before passing over.

~

Over the next hill
where the road curves
around the swift river
the sky opens, stretching
into the face of Matanuska
glacier.

~

In the glory of each
day I pause to smell
the evening air, gaze
at the setting sun, and
feel the autumn wind.

Matanuska Glacier

    1. I’m happy this piece touched you in some way, and that you shared it here. For me this was a glimpse of an expanded world beyond here, that Alaska showed me, that I may or may not be ready for.
