View Property

Mountains, maybe,
or the inlet,
bigger sky.

Beauty at a distance
is called
‘view property.’

It will come soon enough.
A view of a different sort
than we now have.

For now
beauty crowds around us closely,
cedar, fir, hemlock, alder, maple,
ferns, huckleberries, brambles,
fruit trees, nut trees, salal, Oregon grape –

all much more beautiful
than
any distant view.

    Such beauty in the forest. Such gifts in the garden. Yes, it is “Hard to Come By”.
