SULPHUR PEAK

 

 

Low snow on the steep ground,
a slow melt soaking slopes
for Golden Poppies and wild lavender.

Still on the rise, the old man
hasn’t left his post looking down
upon us, the floods and droughts.

Born forty million years ago,
he’s seen the worst of weather
changes—few things as sure today.
