“Mountain Top” by Barbara Clarke


Photos are all I have,
At times,
Of smiling familiar faces,
My family spread out,
I would travel often,
If I had the dime.

 

I would sleep in cars,
Trucks or tents,
Breathe in the air,
Of changing scenes,
Perhaps to escape,
This life, which makes no sense.

 

My favorite photo,
Is of my son,
Perched on a rock,
High on a mountain top,
With a happy smile,
On a day well done.
