I sit musing; absorbed in the moment, mesmerized by gilded, yellow daffodils

Wondering what life's endless fuss, frenzy and furor, are all about

Appearing beyond; imposing, peaked, silhouettes of grandiose, granite hills

Symbols and sentinels of uneasy stability, in a topsy-turvy world, turned, inside-out

With riveted eyes, feasting on the heart-stirring, spectacular sight

From deep within, I hear a familiar, gentle, fleeting whisper

Caress my chafed, confused, soul; soothe the raw, painful blisters.
