“My Favorite Pacific Mountains” Tanka 672

Running razorback

sharp ridgelines in The Que Sons:

only Oahu’s


sharper, darker, more secret –

still Zeros hidden there – here?


  • (The Grand Tetons, The Rockies – and all their permutations: will I see Denali before demise? – for a surfside boy I sure somehow got mountain-made! The Black Hills, Appalachia, especially The Great Smokies, The Ozarks and those Southwest delights, “The Cheery Cows” and Lemon! Hell! I even get happy climbing Mount Dora and Geneva here in Central Florida where the highest point in Florida sets the yardstick back some hundred-n-twenty, hunnert-n-thirty times.  Get a man a nosebleed doing that height!)
