RWP prompt #89 was to use a headline. I used the headline THE GREAT DIVIDE. We live in the Rocky Mountains with a small creek running through... down to the Columbia river then to the Pacific ocean. Other creeks run down the eastern slope of the Great Divide to the East..North and South.
THE GREAT DIVIDE
Gentle creek flowing westward towering Rocky Mountains above broken ridge orange and black where the goats believe in the mountains and dance clear as a glacier ridge pyramids of spiritual evolution summits that view the precise chaos of creation a combination of emotional challenge and physical survival romance and beauty filling my heart gazing at the creek as thoughts run deep old memories new thoughts forming more wisdom then thoughts turn away for a moment to man's eyes and hands and his monuments of foolishness homes with no space or heart like caged up chickens pecking and scratching with broken beaks divided in their ideologies and fears our home in the mountains beside a small creek flowing from chaos gently naturally Westward as the creeks on the other side flow to the East North South gently as man divides on this dying world.
