Snowsquall

Posted by craig steiger (dierdra@jps.net)

Unexpectedly

I was there

This chilly November day

At the christening of Scott's Canyon--

Carpentering a gate alone

High on Quaker Hill

I watched dark clouds

Build on the far ridges

The long profile of firs

Blotted with rain--

Astonished to see a double rainbow

I hurried to the rim

Low shafts of golden sunlight

Poured into the forest bottoms

As the squall advanced,

Far below a loose flock of white birds

Turned above the treetops--

Suddenly the close pines were full of wind,

Sending the last of autumn's leaves

Flying,

Mixed with frozen rain--

Enchanted I stood there

As hail thrust itself out of the swirling clouds

To the dark earth,

And I remembered Muir's exhiliration

With mountain storms,

Chanced to encounter the transcendent spectacle

When sunlight & snowcloud ravish the mute earth,

I was there too

Christened on the Sierra slope
