Majestic Mountains
by
Bob Kimberly

The Olympics shine
in the morning sun,
with every edge
and snowcapped top
chiseled from the sky
in awesome grandeur.

Far to the east in the
Blue Ridge Mountains,
Pisgah and The Rat
recline soft and blue
in their smoky vistas,
rising above the valley
with quiet majesty.
