Autumn on Mount Painter

still autumn morning framed in
cold rarified light the
ground falls before my eyes as
distant traffic murmur far below
gives quiet movement to life and
promotes an inner peace

from this soul footstool
clouds sift to vapour and
silver birds fly in
suspended movement while
far-off, poplar trees stand
dignified in partial undress

the world becomes
surreal, inconsequential
