Snow capped giant
Rises before me, I gaze
In awestruck wonder
Once more, Mount Hood, the sight of you has taken my breath away. Though miles away from me you loom in front of me like a blockade. Clouds hover above your snow capped peak. I gasp. You are intimidating, yet so beautiful.
I remember when I visited you and stood at your base, smelled your mountain air, and trembled at your majesty.
None other I have seen strike me with awe like you do giant rock.

I love the mountains. Although I have never seen Mount Hood, I have been through the Canadian Rockies and the Swiss Alps. If I could have the ocean in front of me and the mountains behind me I could live in a place like that–my dream home. 🙂
Yes I love the mountains and the ocean also. I imagine the Swiss Alps were awesome to see.
Your new poem Frustration is sort of relevant right now. I have been trying to leave a reply here and one thing after another, including closing a different page automatically closed this one. Anyway, I’ll try to remember what I originally wrote. Yes, the alps were awesome. I went in a cable car (something I swore I would never do) to the top of Mount Pilatus then down the other side in a cogwheel car. Weather was pretty overcast and sometimes raining, so that wasn’t so nice, but I guess you get that a lot in the mountains. I would love to be able to do the trip over (3 weeks through 5 European countries plus a day and a half in London England) with my digital camera. A lot of my photos have faded, and I took some of them on the Triple Print films which were supposed to be sent away for developing and I didn’t do that. I ended up with a lot of pictures that had way too much pink and purple hues.
Sorry you experienced frustration in posting your comment. Hopefully it was a one time thing. If it continues please let me know so I can contact WordPress about it.
It sounds like your visit to the Alps was amazing. I have only visited a few mountains in the US and most likely that’s all I will do as I don’t travel much anymore.
The biggest problem wasn’t your site but my computer. For some reason, and not always, when I close one page, two pages will close. Sometimes I don’t even know what the second one was. And often when I click on a link to open a page, it opens two windows with the same page. Computers! Who can understand them? Something like people. 🙂
Oh okay sorry that happened but glad to know it wasn’t my site. Yes, computers can be frustrating at times I agree! 😊
