Carol Moore's Mountain Moments for November 17, 2007

Mountain Moments

Frozen tundra
sunlight catching
heavy frost
laying on the
cold, cold ground
silver, glittery
earth
rainbows darting
around the room
from warm sun
beaming through
the window panes

They have gathered
together outside
for the annual fall clean up
A large machine
ready to clean
out the gutters
of decades of debris
Fallen leaves are
captured by rakes
Reminds me of the
Margaret Mead quote
" Never doubt that a small, group
of thoughtful, committed citizens
can change the world.
Indeed,
it is the only
thing that ever has."

Small thoughtful steps leading to change...
from bundling up to protest the war in Vermont
to being assigned to duty in Iraq from Mississippi
making fairy jars for someone in California
sending pom poms to Paris
writing a poem
celebrating this moment
