Mountains in Flight -Paintings by Desaix Anderson.Poetry by Jim Thurber. Cassidy Bayou Books, NY. 2011.

Mountains in Flight

Mountains are always flying–

Usually away from us

When they’re not falling

On us. They exit

Stage right, sketchy forms

That elude us as they flee the Sun.

Meanwhile the Sun covers

Her eyes. Burned trees descend

Toward the plain.

–Jim Thurber
