A Teton Sunset ~ Adventures in the Tetons – Part 2

A Teton Sunset

Sage fills the valley as cracking ground thunders
pointed peaks rise through clouds of colors

majestic beauties roam an ancient path
one buffalo follows two days past

golden wings soar on the mountain breeze
mating Hawks circle each other with ease

playful paws pounce amongst setting brush
silly coyotes taunt their dinner, no rush

mere dangling moments of twilights in time
magnificent sunset, a Teton rhyme.

This is the second poem of a series of my adventures living in the forests of Wyoming across from the Teton Mountains. I promised a piece to Sherry Blue Sky from Poets United. Sherry, I decided to write of the adventures in a series for there are so many things to express one mere poem cannot pull it off. For example,  one late night where beady eyes circled my camp and my dog stood her ground is a poem all in its self.

The first poem of the series My White Stallion

Absolutely beautiful, River. Wow. I cant wait to hear about the eyes around the campfire (were they Man or Beast, hee hee!!!) I'm impressed you can tell it in poem form. This one is lovely. I, too, loved the "mere dangling moments of twilight in time" lines best. Also the pouncing paws........looking forward to more, yay! And thank you!

I beautifully evocative poem...the colors, imagery didn't need a photo, but it goes so well.

You are truly blessed, River to live where you do. The works must just flow like the river you are!
