My Blue Horizon

I stand on my top step
morning after morning

rejoicing in the sky opposite,
and the undulant line of the mountain –

their many different moods of blue,
on different days, in many weathers.

Today both mountain and sky
are clear and full of light.

  17. I love this view in all its moods that you have posted and I love this poem. And I love that your Australian swimming champion totally stung the lad from China and wouldn't back down. And all the shades of blue around your lovely continent.
