Sunday Muse -- a "Man's Endeavor" poem

[photography by Artist, Jasper James]

A New Horizon 

A match 
we might say a mate 
is coming 
Coming to 
pair with the 
poor old man 
Man a million years old 

Trampled by man 
and beast 
weather elements 
hot and cold 
Natives tourists 
and other trespassers 
one can only imagine 

[Wikipedia Photo]

Old Man of the Mountain 
Great Stone Face 
hold your breath,  
artists and engineers 
working modern day 

                [My photo, a TV shot of CBS this morning Saturday]

had become old and unsafe 
Old buildings
some skyscrapers 

Put to rest 
in, now for, this 
artist's dreams 
The tired and weak 
stacked side by side 
Safe on this mountain 
Close but not too close 
next to the "Old Man" 

A New Horizon

Love what you did with this Jim; all the info, images and the old man in the mountain. Wonderful!

Sideways on, another startling image jolts the mind onto action, thanks for the revelation!

Fascinating sideways view of the image! The Surfside condo met the fate of the Old Man. Such tragedy!

I like the additional images ... they work well with the poetry. I also saw the woman face down in water. Couldn't pass it by. Cheers!

You put the image to good use. I'd never heard of the "Old Man" and he's already gone :(

Yeah, it sucked when the old man of the mountain came down in NH. I remember that. I like how you see the city as that fallen granite angel...

A thoughtful and introspective poem.

Something to ponder as it feels like every new story is a crumb short of good news.

Wonderful, unique response to the image. Life is a lot of falling down and attempts to rebuild.

Love the sideways version and intensity of this poem.
