Today’s Wonder poem is about Mount Everest, and the mountain and its role as an unpredictable force of nature has been in the news lately (sadly) with the avalanche that has taken the lives of native guides. Mary Lee captures that role of the mountain in her powerful poem this morning. I decided to go after the mountain with wonder, in the form of a haiku.

Peace (in a few lines),
There were so many unwritten (attempted) poems for today. I wound up letting the avalanche bury them all.
You capture the mountain’s power in a few words.
It’s hard not to focus on the news when writing on a daily basis, right?
Exhausted inspiration, love that line. It makes me exhale in amazing wonder.
