One Single Impression -- Intersections

Better late than never. This week’s prompt overwhelmed me with a surfeit of images. Not sure the following really counts as a “poem”!


day intersects night in the gloaming,
arching mountains merge in misty valleys,
while heat and rain combine in burgeoning forests,
and brilliant green foliage cuts across deepest shadow;
will hope and history unite to save our future?

This week the Obama administration announced efforts to better regulate mountaintop removal strip-mining, and to end the "expedited" approval of mountaintop removal permits begun under the Bush administration. This is a move in the right direction but does not go nearly far enough.

Well, that's a beautiful extended metaphor that is a poem if there ever was one. Thanks, Sue!
