ecstasy of sunset

all day
they hold their breath
turning blue
to exhale
at dusk
an ecstasy of
moss and mist

    Our mountains are blue but not because they hold their breath. I like that line in this poem. 🙂 I hadn’t thought of the hills being blue because they hold their breath. That’s really an interesting way to interpret why the mountains are blue. 🙂 Thanks for sharing. Is this a reblog of someone’s work or is it yours? I was a bit confused as to who the author is. Maybe it’s because it’s too early and I haven’t had my coffee yet. 🙂

      It is a reblog – the author’s picture is above her image. I liked her lines, as well. This piece is thought-provoking and I love it.


Communication shows appreciation 😉
