moutain mirages

20 08 2012

there are some days

looking out across the lake

when I see mountains that aren’t there

clouds and sunlight and shadows and memories collaborate

making mountain mirages

after the joy of

Oh my gosh!  Mountains!

comes the disappointment of

Oh.  They’re not real.

but they are still beautiful

which is still joyful

and what’s disappointing in that?

nothing

exactly

so enjoy all mountains, real or imagined

’cause we need all the beauty we can get

I used to do this in East London, re imagine the dark clouds as mountains. Now I live in Chiang Mai, Thailand where I don’t have to visualise them, there they are 🙂
