I've never seen Appalachia..but would love to..perhaps some day.

Appalachia.
........

Iíve never seen Appalachia
in the fall,
where simple leaves clothe the world
in golden landscapes
and winds whistle tunes with strange melodies
that haunt the mists
deep amongst trees
so very tall.

Iíve never lifted a silent stone
from a forest floor,
nor listened to the music of a gurgling stream
that rills fast in sunlit smile
tumbling in hastened joy to join
others of itís ilk
as they descend in the sacred sound
of a waterfall roar.

Iíve never been in Appalachia
in the fall,
nor heard the fiddle played in guitar harmony
as mandoline trills
race with banjosí plucking
ancient airs from memories distant
and mountain voices sing gospels to the Lord
within a clapboard hall.

GD.. Mar..2006

But, you do have imagination and perception, allowing you to describe our region very well. It is much as you say; beautiful for miles upon miles of undulating green mountains, and even in the Fall, there are enough pine and evergreens to make it tri-colored, at least. Thank you for your kind words about our mountainland, I've been in the hills of Georgia for seven years, now. A native and resident of Atlanta, feels much as you do about Appalachia, but it is nearby for them. In Georgia, and much of the South, there is a saying that all connections are made through Atlanta, so if this happens (perhaps, on your way to Heaven), tell them you want a temporary detour. - Bill

You're kidding. It's beautiful... Want to see some live web cam pictures of different areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains? Go to my friends Little Switzerland Cafe site at: www.switzerlandcafe.com Right now it's winter, but tune in for the spring, summer and fall scenes...
