The very morning 
I discovered "Elderwomen Musings" 
inspired, my vision extended
to the mountain beyond the mountain
a scene I had never before seen.

Edith, 89 year old dear friend 
at 7 am 
called to tell me
her home's interior 
was infused in pink
from the sky
I went outside 
to look
I saw another world
mountain behind mountain

and for Elderwomen Musings)

Your "Elderwomen Musing" is beautiful.
How true that we focus on what we focus on and never see beyond.
Thanks for connecting me to such wonder.
