Poem: Mountains of Orpheus

after Lawren Harris

Mountains of Orpheus

the beautiful Rhodope mountains
the beauty of the Rhodope mountains

the red beauty of the rolling Rhodope mountains
the rolling red beauty of the Rhodope mountains

what are you feeling, chronic mountaineer?
all is not lost

there is a tunnel through the darkness which is dark itself
or rather which itself is dark

a dog wins the half marathon after being let out to pee
because there is wonder and joy in the world, even still

last line from a Facebook comment by Paul Vermeersch about a headline about the second last line.
