Connemara Views

 

the raw untamed west
sizzling shoreline ebbs
tree-twisted staircase to heav’n

                 …

october rains unravel
fern, ivy and briar
tumbleweed plays toss

                 …

on drying haystacks
kerchief canopies anchor
errant wild grasses

                 …

rainbow crown erupts
violet, citrus, and blue
the west awakens
