Climbing Raven Rocks

I dance upwards;
below me,
the waves slap the cliffs
and beat the rhythm.

Wind whipped clouds gallop
with flying manes
across the blue plain of the sky.

The wild geese resent
our intrusion;
honking displeasure,
they swoop a warning: 
we are guests here.

Amid the cedar fragrance
of summer and freedom,
I lean back
into the arms of the world.

Thanks, Jan. The geese live on the rocks and were quite adamant that it's their territory; they swooped very low over us in a mock attack. Geese can be quite ferocious, and I was glad they had realized we don't pose a danger and do not warrant a serious attack.

Exactly what Anne Marie said. A peaceful serenity is what I felt in your words today Agnes. Your talent always amaze me.
