New Pilgrim poem

No Ooray hope

Rockies teated, staggered rows,
raw wind thrown down ragged slopes,

summits frozen, dolloped white, 
backdropped stars put out by night,

 

Colorado town dark below,
charred love recalled,

 

gone black to ice. Tent frosted,
campfire cold -- hunched alone

 

creep inside, breathe out light, 
dream of sleep, or try to try.
                               Timothy Pilgrim
