Persistently Faithful



“The mountains are so dominant
that some days the people refuse
to look at them as children
turn away from the fathers who beat them.”

– Jim Harrison


Though I live where mountains never were,

I understand the motivations of the eagle

who mounts skyward each morning, higher,

to brush the peak with the tip of her wing.

Day 12 of Jilly’s “28 Days of Unreason” dawns brightly, and with a prompt that offers more than a poet can see by reading it.  In my case, I tore it apart and inhaled the confetti of a dead poet’s intent.
