Emptying Thoughts

Done for Carpe Diem #880 secrets unveiled of the Deep North: coolness, cloud peaks, not permitted to tell

parting thoughts
along a passing cloud
mountain top

(Adjei Agyei-Baah, December 18, 2015)

inspired by these:

cloud peaks
how many have crumbled
on the mountain of the moon

as I step on coins
on sacred Yudono road
tears rush to my eyes

too late for the ferry
after a steaming hot summer night
with my paramour
