It’s the time of year to start doing nature walks and hikes at higher elevations, so last week
I went to Molino Basin at 5,000 feet. A lot of wildflowers including more thistles than I’ve ever seen.

On the Catalina’s

highest points

“thistles spike

the summer air “

now captured

in my mind’s eye

this Scottish rose

becomes my muse

as I raise a glass

of whiskey

to the dancing maids

of the highlands

in festive colors

that warm my blood

coloring different parts

of my brain

each overflowing

into the other

altering my state

of awareness

creating a new flow

yet another

basis of reality.
