warm nostril winds tumble
down blue mountain falls
whistling through redwood shade
over ancient soil

hairy dust blown seeds
collected on lake glow shimmer
in fog morning pumpkin sky

glacier waters spill
forth a thousand arms
churn molten energy
thrust rock to scrape cloud
rain lightning burn
liquid earth blood
to the sea

hemispheres, balanced
long before man first stood
in awe
fearing his finite vessel
a forgotten shriek
to the majestic
untamed panoply
