Thanks for joining me today. Sit a spell and find something that you like. I enjoy sharing my curiosity through my writing.  Feel free to like, comment, or follow me.

Today’s poetry post goes in a different direction from some of my past poems.  Perhaps you can feel some of the images and thoughts that are hiding in “A Whisper.”

Here are some of the previous posts.  You will find a variety of poems from the past few weeks as well as a two other postings:  a short story about “Rebel and the Red-Neck Bears” and a travel feature about Montana’s “Magic City.”

  • Rebel and the Red-Neck Bears
  • Frozen Morning
  • Guardian of the Range
  • Poet’s Last Wish
  • Visit the “Magic City”
  • Hilltop Hiker
  • Do You Ever Wonder?
  • Nighttime Rain
  • Man-Cave Friends
  • Little Things Become Big Things

Plan to visit the Photo Gallery.  Pictures from the Big Sky Country of Montana and the Buckeye State of Ohio will be posted from time to time.  Unless noted, any photos used on the site have been taken by yours truly (I enjoy sharing some of my photography here).

An Archives tab has been added so that it is easy to find some of my earlier poems.

Welcome to the Gallery

Blaze-Mountain-Summer-Skiing.jpg

My youngest daughter and her husband are avid skiers.   They took this picture of Blaze Mountain in the Spanish Peaks of the Madison Range of southwestern Montana.  They have skied the backcountry ski line a few times during the summer.  The beautiful and long snowfield fills a small gully that runs down the northwestern face of the mountain.  Skiers have to hike to the snowfield, but for an avid skier, it is well worth the effort.

A view of downtown Billings, Montana from this past summer.  Notice the smoked-filled sky in the background; the smoke came from fires far from Billings.
