  1. Awesome with the mountains in view. Lots of great fragments there too. Home to the mountain where the soul is restored. A little patch and mend can stave off the end.

  2. You know, I do think that mountains can work miracles. I think when one is in the mountains one can reflect on life's problems and they would all be so insignificant. I enjoyed both of your cinquains, Truedessa.

  3. You are right, for some reason some places are the perfect locations to find shelter and heal when one is broken. Beautiful photo, Truedessa.

    1. Writing broken poems always makes one feel sad and reflective. I am not sure why I don't show..I guess I am thin like a ghost..

  19. Two lovely cinquains. I have not tried this form - but you've inspired me to give it a go, one of these days. " take me to the mountain" - perfect. Everyone needs a go to place to repair themselves.
