wanted to do this sooner

I wanted to do this for father's day. I wanted to share photos my Dad took recently. Last year he took me along to Grandfather's Mtn. He goes every year. The top photo shows why it's called Grandfather's Mtn. A very good profile shot, don't you think?
Take care, & enjoy the outdoors...

soil [a poem]

rocky soil
packed down beat down trampled path soil
woven with weeds
good healthy soft
I am soiled
not soft enough
too many rocks
in no real pattern
for no real reason
and my imagination can't make one up
I don't think I can change this soil
of mine
yet I can tell anyone
how to fix
any soil
but mine
[yeah Mike, your right,
"I could laugh
but it's not funny..."]
the only way
I can really change you
is to change
simple to say
painful to act upon
