I feel lucky when a poem comes to me. Thank you for reading this. Let me know what you think. mjh


I wish I could
absorb this cold clear air,
soak up these snowmelt streams,
capture the rush of the wind,
and the sudden quiet in the pause.
I wish I could
take all of this in
and carry it home
to the desert.

I would invite over friends
and breathe out a cool wet breath
sprinkle snow on their heads
drop ice in their drinks
and let them put their heads
to my heart to hear
the thunder of waterfalls
and each would take a turn
looking into my eyes
at the light from the top of the world.
Cool, they would say,
que cool.
