Craig Wisner

High Sierra Glimpses.

The remnants of a trip over Taboose Pass and into the promised land with Tom.

1 (2)

2 (1024x576)

A distant cascade

echoes off talus walls

-breeze stirring the pines
3 (576x1024)

Coyote slips into the grove

behind me

four ears listening,

two of us


4 (1024x576)

5 (576x1024).jpg

A blood stain

on the grass beside

Bench Lake

-I wash my hands

as two trout heads


into the depths

Steaks lined upon a log

scales gleaming in the sun

-your life

into mine

(I cried upon finishing my soup)

6 (1024x576)

Waking from a nap-

two ants

drag a fly

from under my hat.

7 (1024x576)

A lone coyote

descends a rock shelf,

circles the lake

-leaving bird calls

in its wake

8 (1024x576)

9 (576x1024)

10 (1024x576)


No mosquitos!

Just birdsong,


11 (1024x576)Thunder sounds

tentbound now

-noodles will have to wait



and older


the hint of tears

in their eyes

One response

  1. Tom

    Thanks, Craig, for sharing…the beauty… the tears…the simple joy of being alive…there.
