mountain behind mountain:
the last layer
blends with the sky.

    I live in a place full of mountains and I've often searched for a way to express what you've expressed so beautifully!

    great work.

    Simple and elegant: beautifully executed and economic, yet giving so much.

    Gerald,
    _What a position you've presented!
    _Where, as vision ends... senses begin, and layers of reality - preserve the valid.
    _This is what I was given by your good words! Tnx -M

    even more blue
    mountain after mountain
    dissipating in the sky

    slowly they return
    through morning mist . . .
    yesterday's hills

    misty morning -
    mountain fades into sky
    on the horizon

    grey clouds fronting white cloud-
    the thunderhead continues to swell

    The sky
    Gets lower
    Behind the mountains

    dark clouds
    fleeing approaching clouds
    my midnight walk
