Writing in Ripples~Poems

Mountains

Pink haze wreaths a scarf around

Rock shoulders,

Steadying dizzy scapes

Against arctic wind.

 

The land’s jagged, full of sharpened edges,

Drops

Deepened where His Fingers shaped

And carved the canyons,

Nestled Knuckles

Between trees breathing cold.

 

Scattered points of pine

Flock the valleys–

A conifer carpet

Amid open spots of white.

 

From above, flattened ridges

Watch the sky, waiting

For the blushing warm

To cast a smile on their face.

— Jubilee A. Lipsey, 2016

  1. May I just say what a relief to uncover an individual who
    genuinely understands what they’re discussing over the internet.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More people must look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular since you definitely have the
    gift.
