Soft Silky Valleys
Naked Delicious Mounds
Nature's Beauty Abounds
Enticed me with Desire
My Curiosity was Set on fire

A Mystic Journey
Magnificent Peaks
Should I climb This Mountain
Is it out of My Reach?

Alas! on Top
I can't be Stopped
I climbed "Old Woman Mountain"

Must Beware -- the Kodiak Bear
Lives There --
The Dogs Lick their chops
For Lunch They Stopped
To eat from the Salmon Buffet
Free from Nature -- loaded in the streams
Natural Lakes - Reflections Everywhere
Is this Real or just a Dream?

Majestic Beauty from the Mountain Top
Cannot be explained
God's Landscape
No painter could capture
No picture could contain

The wonders and beauty of nature
Are there for you to Find
Grateful that I was young
when blessed with an opportune time.

Never thought I'd make it to the top
But, wonders never Cease
Now -- How -- to get back Down
This Mountain is so steep.

I just sat on my buttocks
and slide down the mountain side
My poor buns are killing me
It was one hell of a ride

Back from my journey
Safe at Home
Vivid Visions in my mind
I really. Really, really did
"Old Woman Mountain" Climb.

I conquered the Mountain
And you can too
Just envision this poem in
your creative mind.
If you have a good imagination
You can visit my mountain
any time.

Velvet Vigor

Having always wanted to visit Alaska, you took me as close as I've been - beautifully imaged in verse - thank you, Karen - maybe one day I'll get to go there and see the Northern Lights!! Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Wonderful picture in my mind. I hope I can think my way down instead of your mode of transportation!LOL!
Thanks for the adventure. Gregg

If I remembered the words I would sit back I'd close my eyes and visualize what a trip -- it would have been -- to slide down the mountain with you again.
