wyoming’s winter

Both field and mountain

All taken by the snow

Till nothing yet remains.

Fields we saw

blooming with 

so many different flowers,

frost-withered now

to a single hue.

weekly photo challenge: resilient

They ask me where’s the sense

on jasper mountains?

I laugh and don’t reply,

in heart’s own quiet:

Peach petals float their streams

away in secret

To other skies and earths

than those of mortals

~Li Po*


Resilient: multiple exposure images of the ever-changing landscape along Hwy. 287 between Laramie, Wyoming and Fort Collins, Colorado in combination with Li Po’s poem, In the Mountains: A reply to the Vulgar”  reflect the resilience of time and words.

On my coming back,

how many pathways are there

through the spring grasses?
