April Haiku #715

Updated on April 18, 2016

The sage fades into

rising falling fields of pink

carpet mangled thorn

here the trail tightens

thin and rocky strip of steps

on angled hillside

first creek winter melt

where the underbrush thickens

around Aspen groves

a step and silence

hovering blue butterflies

flutter with held breath

grace us Ash Canyon

sway many mountain thaws

to return gracious

      Thank you vocal coach, always exploring, Frank Atanacio for the support I have appreciated every moment during this poetry month. I wish I could source this drawing but I just found this torn off page in my garage while spring cleaning. Jamie

      You have a beautiful way with words. And the photo is perfect. Did you do the painting?
