a grumpy gift: Truchas (Elevation 8,000 Feet) — O at the Edges

An amazing poem from my mentor, Robert. Any of you out there who enjoy what I write have him to thank for my growth and development.  Always graceful, encouraging and truthful, what this poet has granted me i will forever honour and cherish.

Truchas (Elevation 8,000 Feet) Climbing these stairs, I resemble a trout flopping in dry air, another gasp and a ratcheting heart rate, up, out, and through that opening, into the pale glow. I spent a glorious four days in New Mexico, in the company of poets. The Tupelo Press Truchas Conference outdid itself again.
