The Jinksy Mountains

These are The Pastel Mountains
as sculpted by the sun,
blurred lovingly by heat haze
on a day that's just begun.

These are The Fairy Mountains
on which bright pixels dance,
and wandering through their valleys,
the mind is in a trance.

These are The Peaceful Mountains
where never wind has stirred,
where no sound breaks the silence
except the sound of bird.

These are The Slate-Grey Mountains
prospectors trod of old;
their jaggedness their beauty,
their colours come from gold.

These are The Jinksy Mountains
(not Jinxy, understand),
which if not wholly natural...
Blow me, they're Jinksy-planned!

You thought them just a picture?
You're wrong, my friend, you're wrong:
they're Land Art for the record.
She's another Richard Long!

Bless you for that, Dave! I never knew I was building a range of mountains - just for Blogland! Hehehe!

Your words just trip off the tongue, Dave. Jinksy Mountains - what a tribute to have a range named after you;-)

Easy to recognize Jinksy Mountains, isn't it, colorful and serene and fun.

Thanks for that Dave - I have just joined Jinksy's thing and really hadn't a clue what I was supposed to do.

Oh, this is fun and whimsical! Love it all, but especially

"These are The Fairy Mountains

All for GOD,

Much thanks and a grand weekend to yourself.

Mountains are almost as inspiring as forests, I think.

Thanks very much.

The Centre Court of Wimbledon must be a very inspiring place. This is a wonderful poem. Brought a smile to my face ;-)

Your words compliment Jinksy's painting very well!

There is something special about the place, yes - even when there's no tennis!
