Out From The Valley

Out from the valley where mountain tops skewed, banked

clouds unloading, distorting all views, floods upon desert,

once arid and red, carpet of green, festooned flower bed,

sending scents risen on pillows of air, gasps of delight

flotilla’d here, there, perfuming horizons as far as the eye,

delected infusion, wafts powder’d nearby, out from the valley,

suspended to coasts, sleep inhaled haze, breathless pause

where it rose, gardenia’d slumber, drifts where it falls, drifting 

and falling, meadow lark calls, glade in the valley, mountains

that sigh, cloud bank rolls on, another forbye, swelling the arid, 

perfuming the breeze, out from the valley, cloud carried with ease.
