Sweet.

The Fishhook is way up there on my to-do list. I think TR bumped it a bit higher.

Stone arc
hooking the mind
body must follow
the elegant line
cracks from a distance
smooth without hold
on closer inspection
grips for hand and toe
blue like no other
colors the day
sky bright Sierra
leads us this way
tussle Mt Russel
and call it a (good!) day...

I think Hamizzzle thought we might get caught out and we wanted the lamp just to be...you know...safe...we did manage to wake early enough to be at iceberg by 8:30 am and back to the portal parking lot around 9 pm...very worked!

A most excellent poem Jello! Thank you.

Story??? Let's hear a story!
