Ocean laughter

A torrent of wind

along the riverbank roars,

runs through the poplars,

whirlpools of ocean laughter,

the voice of a thousand leaves.

leaden river flows. 13 more words


Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

One of my favorite places on Skyline Drive is the poplars. I’ve blogged about them before (here). They are beautiful any time of the year but in the heart of summer a good description of them is dense.
