    Beware, walkers unaware, take heed
    Beyond this grass, this near remnant
    Of long-dead grass and bare crooked limbs
    Broken branches black against the dim air
    Lie demons, and ghosts of past regrets
    Lurking beyond the edge of civilization
    Just out of grasp but close enough
    To hear them whisper if you are still
    Sorrow keens in the mist
    And the low hum of murmured lost potential
    Call your darkest self, and every doubt looms large
    Do not linger
    Do not listen
    Do not breathe in too deeply
    This melancholy air and fog-shadows
    Turn back
    Lest you be forever lost
    Beyond the edges of time
    Forever chasing ghosts
    You truly do not want to meet

    *****
    Lest I leave you all glum:

    Nothing warms the heart like
    A hot cup of tea and memories of old stories
    Laughingly shared around a warm kitchen table
    The smiles and grins eclipsing any fog outside
    Pull up a chair, I'll get you a mug.

    Men, it has been well said, think in herds. It will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one."

    Oh Kirsten, what can I say? You never disappoint us with your awesome photography! I absolutely love these kinds of places, mountains, forests, wooded areas and the like so I have to thank you for a pleasant mini-vacation. And thank you so very much for sharing your works of art with us.
