.-.-.Cumberland Gap Imagery - Poem by Debora Short

Amalgam and surreal silver fusions
Flow between two ancient peaks, blinding visions

Setting sun’s angled brilliance showcasing
Norris Lake’s halo-ed magnificence

Distant layers of tonal blue – violet
Soaring smoke-y hills and mountains delight

The sky a waning clear winter-ed blue
Contrails weave their icy patterned plaids

Wispy white apparitions of other’s down
Seeing visions from east, west, north and south

Fluffy frump – l’d original gifts
Heaven-d kilts warm imaginations

Pristine golden pastures flank the roadside
Encircled in deciduous umber-

‘d lace, evergreen hemlocks and cedars grace
Dotted cantilevered black - painted

Dairy barns dressed in Pennsylvania
Dutch quilted icons and topped mossy

Green, cows graze in bucolic peace
Fieldstone chimneys sweetly send rising thanks
