That place on the moon

Smoky Mountains by JVivienneC

On the moon
There are smoky mountains too
Though not as picturesque

I am sure

As our Blue Ridge range
Travelling the horizon for miles
Pink, violet and indigo

I am sure

The moon alone
Coverts its barren grey
Undulating landscape

I am sure

You and I appreciate
Our flora and fauna covered terra firma
To dwell upon nature's panorama

I am sure

We would never
Want our smoky mountains
Be barren like that range

On the moon

  1. Beautiful photo and your poem makes it even more vivid. No we wouldn't want to trade a moonscape for our beautiful mountains.


  2. Indeed we wouldn't. Great work on this Think Tank!

  3. Beautifully written. I love the line about the "barren gray undulating landscape".

  4. ninotaziz,

    A very nicely composed appreciation of all that is good here on earth.
