Stowe Mountain, Vermont



the tears that

had pressed so fervently

against her eyelids,



The colors unite

in a dance in front of her;

reds and yellows painted atop

oranges and greens,

a perfectly hued amalgamation.


She lifts her damp face

up to the blushing trees,

and offers her tears,

a silent prayer

of atonement.
