Haven of Rest

Garden bench under the pine trees

Come sit awhile

On the comfy garden bench,

Neath’ the tall pine trees.

Let the sun melt away your cares.

Close your eyes and rest.

Nature’s tranquility

Will refresh your soul,

And you will leave renewed

To face another day of life.

Clear Views

Haiku about seeing 5 mountains on a clear day
Original Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson©2014 Photograph created in Photoshop from images found on Wikipedia.com Views of Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Jefferson, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier.

Bald Peak State Park–Scenic Viewpoint.  In clear weather the park offers views of Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Jefferson, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier.
(I actually saw the view of the five mountains one clear day when I was at Bald Peak Park.  At the time I did not have a good camera with which to photograph the scene, therefore I had to create the picture that you see here, but the original view was similar though not quite as clear.  However, it was so amazing as I did actually  see all five mountains!   I wish I would have had a camera that could have captured that experience.  Maybe someday…..:)
