Publication Alert (10/9/19): “Up There” appears in Poet’s Salon!

I’m happy to report that today Poet’s Salon has published my Tanka-Prose “Up There” as part of its collection of the same name! Thank you, Kath Abela Wilson, for your consideration!

Up There

Breathing hard. Heart racing like never before. I lean against a pine. The trail continues. But will I?

Step by step by step.

Until the rocky apex of Sentinal Dome appears. The climax of the ascent before me, I pour out the last of my strength to reach the top.

The whole of Yosemite valley opens before me.

the falls
a ribbon of silver
on granite
a symphony of wind
as an Autumn prelude


Enjoy all of the poetry here!
