in clinging strands of green aside
steep sides of Rocky Mountain country
Maligne Lake a destination
where travelers peer from the
safety of their vehicles
knowing bears are on the prowl:
'Do Not Leave Cars' read the signs.
somewhere beyond the next curve
a sparkly river guards the way
trees golden in the sun
where a picnic table awaits.

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: email@example.com re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
