Alaskan Portrait

Rating: 5.0
Among the vast terrain
of willow and spruce
with background of
snow-capped mountains,
eagles soar majestically,
joining clouds in unison,
while sunshine and blue sky
welcome all to nature's
living portrait of beauty.

Scattered throughout the tundra
and along the ribbon of roadways,
the prickly wild rose grows,
colors of yellow, pink
and rose among the brush,
struggling to endure the short
Alaskan summer and trying to
postpone the oncoming harshness
of winter with their profuse
display of color.
