The Alps in Unassailable Daylight

The great mountains are silent
in the light shadow
of their snows.
I am above them, and mute.

Looking Up

Silver glint
of wings
in flight
cast confetti
across
the cerulean sky.

Dorothy Swoope

Me in my jet fighter

Me in My Jet Fighter

Above Grand Canyon
Some thirty-five thousand feet
Earth’s fractured landscape

Robert McHugh
