Mt. Bachelor



Photo, Charlie Dehner


oblivious of the peril
clouds float 
toward mountain peak ~~
impale themselves 
on serrated edges
bleed white

  3. "Clouds ... (are) oblivious," loving it Helen.
    Monday we had those clouds bleeding white rain AND white hail on us as we were coming down Mt. Snowdonia (Wales, U.K.).

  7. This is just so perfect! For the prompt as well as for a beautifully poetic description of what clouds and mountains look like when they meet!

  9. The last two lines are amazing! Wow. And the image … I'm hoping you have it framed on your wall! Nicely done, Charlie.

  10. Ah wonderful--especially in a landscape that is so much bigger than human but also feels laden with a kind of emotion (cruelty sometimes! Though so beautiful.) Well done, Helen! Thanks. k.

  12. Wow. My first visit here and I am loving what I see. Thanks heaps for your kind comment on my piece today. I see we both mentioned clouds, but yours is so utterly romantic, oh my...,the cloud is bleeding. It evokes...all kinds of feelings. :')

  13. This has so much intensity packed into its small form, Helen--there's almost a physical sense of impending storm, and danger, ending with a bleeding seems very appropriate, also a fade-out or cinematic dissolve feeling there--and what a stunning photo.

  14. Dunno if "Mt. Bachelor" is the actual or poetic name, but there's something in how this dude assaults the approaching clouds that makes me wonder.
