Teton haiku revised

a grand perch for stars mountain touches painted skies time worn teton rock meadows sprawl below giant sentries tower steep step to heaven

Marilyn, I like this better. I guess I want haiku's to say more. I love the idea of mountains with stars on top and the meadow bed. Steps to heaven yes! I just want more! Can't blame me for that! not bad! Dellena

Mazza, See my crit for the other "version". The same thoughts apply. But of the two, I prefer this one. Best Mark

Marilyn, Yes, I like this one also; actually I favor this one. It leads one to many visions and thoughts of the great Tetons and all they have to offer. Brava! Best always, Lora

Marilyn, to be candid, I liked the last one better. That said, let me tell you what this one lends to the moment: You now place in the hands of "grand" and "time" the elegance and power of "rock" ie; mountains. It does take the overt sprituality out of it, and replaces an earthy; do you feel it? moment for us to speak to. There is a feeling I have, that you wished to be true to form, yet you left the creator in; "heaven" there is the creator. I think you couldn't completely let go. Well.. damn.. maybe I do like this version better; but I'll never tell.
