Mountain View from a Window Seat

At

first

it lurks

behind

shrouds

of         clouds

shredded

by        shards

longing for

sun   to thaw

its   carapace

of snow and ice

expose    to sky

a perfect   map of

silver river      veins

craggy rocks     and

mossy paths    through

hump and    hummock

outcrop knoll    and ridge

engine roars     wings dip

snapshot of a     tiny village

scattered red    Lego bricks

amongst weather – bent trees

and mirrored melted  l a k e s  like

lenses of sunglasses   as it passes

overhead just the sharp shadow

of the plane and me in my window

seat with my birds-eye mountain view
