Mountains in the Morning

Most mornings our mountains look sharp
and rugged against a clear blue sky.
Today they are the background
in an impressionist painting,
A smudged outline of their usual selves
Behind a screen of mysterious mist.

The wind will blow the mist away later
And the mountains will shout
“See! I am here,
as I always have been.”

********************

Yesterday, the mountains were misty indeed. Some of it is smog I’m sure. But now we have had some rain at last! So the sage is starting to bloom. All over town the rain awakens the sage and it breaks out in glorious purple. I love the sight.
