Harvesting just enough sage for a broom

Broom sage to sweep the hearth clean of debris

Coming together into a chorus

Free thoughts  flow

Seeking to enlighten words
Can then thou create

Avalanche warning!
All daunting.

All now dead!
How many hearts bleed?
“Sorries”, said.!

The mountain cares...
