Hereupon this

vast space

of Xizang,

the yak is in its pen

next to the copper quarry

on the outskirts

of where

the upper delta

wades to

meet the

knotted beech.

This is for the Monday Morning Writing Prompt challenge.

Note to Victoria:   I became way too far ahead of myself and ended up choosing one word for each letter of the alphabet.  Yikes!  This is as far as I could get using 14 of the words I chose.

  1. Yeah, Gayle. You did it. It seems like poems done like this have an eerie, otherworldly quality to them. I like the words you worked with. It conjured up an image of Tibet for me. Thanks for participating. Victoria


  2. Hey Gayle,
    Lovely to read this one!!
    This has some super chilling factor to it- like a mystic aura..

    Wonderful words from a lovely soul.. 🙂
    How are things with you this winter?

    Love to my soul friend


    • Thanks, Olivia! So glad you liked this–I took Victoria’s challenge of choosing random words that I liked and here’s what showed up. It was fun.

      Once again this year, we are experiencing temperatures well below normal–it will be down to 30F degrees tonight. I don’t really like the cold. But the sky is bright blue today and clear–no clouds. What temperatures are you having?

      Love back to my soul friend… xoxo

  4. Oh, Gayle, this is a fine work. Well done. I appreciate it and the photo too. What we have learned from Tibet, but it’s nice to see it is written about just from a nature standpoint and so peaceful. Love yaks, by the way. Not sure why.

    Have a great day …


  5. loved the breeze of unknown land that blew through your poem. 🙂
