The jagged heights of Broken Top
smoothed under rolls of clouds.
Such an abundance of softness,
so lacking the rough stones of the trail to the summit.

  1. Hi Lorna,

    I enjoyed this. Thank you so much for taking part in the revival of Vice/Versa at Poets United. It is a small prompt site, and I do hope that you will also find time to visit others who have shared links. I am hoping to 'grow' this site; and to so do I guess I need help from those who post....

    It sounds to me like Broken Top is a mountain, and from the words you used I can picture it. I think I would like to climb it, especially since it lacks rough stones. I form a mental picture as I read your words. Thank you.

  2. Oh, I love this rolling mountainous scene!!

  3. Your words made me see the mountain, softened by clouds. Beautiful.

  4. So abundance of softness, is a way to see it..nice

  5. Wow, beautiful description of clouds on mountain tops! Love the idea of clouds being something that softens.
