Vacation

Huckleberry ice cream

in a

tapered glass flute,

two spoons, one vanilla wafer.

 

Sky in the window

putting on a show,

drama and loud opinions

without commercial interventions.

 

Roaming with the bison

in Hayden Canyon.

Alpine lake blushes blue,

reflecting on all it sees.

 

Above a meadow

standing with spruce and pine

and forty strangers (photographers); comes

a Ranger, arms folded.

He leans into a pine.

 

Reflecting on some scenes

observed and felt,

memories of a blue hue,

serene as an alpine lake.

 

Or a fat cut-throat trout

slicing it’s way upstream

unaware of the bald eagle

in the quaking aspen tree.
