The mica-flecked granite outcroppings loom,
releasing bits of themselves randomly 
sparkling, as they fall, in felted-light they bloom. 

Blasted cliffs, yet brazen, they rise without decree,
unconcerned with the maples, and the birch,
releasing bits of themselves randomly. 

An ashen, sulking, sky hides the eagle's perch 
and softens all the jagged edges of the scene
unconcerned with the maples, and the birch.

A collage of layers blends all color in between
each angle decomposing in the rain,
and softens all the jagged edges of the scene.

Within the fog the distant mountain's strain
bruised in shades of lavender and forest green,
each angle decomposing in the rain.

A watercolor tableau where, unforeseen,
the mica-flecked granite outcroppings loom,
bruised in shades of lavender and forest green
sparkling as they fall, in felted-light they bloom.

How kind you are formed poetry is not widely accepted in the 21st century, it falls in the larger category of RHYME. It's a free verse world. I would like simply to feed myself writing which may be a harder task that achieving a laureat?
