Poem in process -– Mt. Neahkahnie (scribbled), 2004

Mt. Neahkahnie overlooks Manzanita, Oregon.

I climbed the mountain with watercolour and stationery in tow to write a letter for the “Letters from Russia” project (I wrote each by hand, one at a time, in situ, in “character”). As it goes, i “warmed up” by scribbled a bit of freeverse about surrounding, circumstances, and sensations of the location, on the back of a notepad.
