Poem of The Month:
ABOUT THIS PLACE
There is an almost constant rumble
echoing from Highway 69 –
cattle trucks, hay trains, horse trailers,
Canadians flying south,
Helenans heading home.
A gentle valley in southwest Montana
in a state of beauty writ large,
“The Last Best Place.”
This small ranch
in the shadow of Bull Mountain
has been OUR place

this humble ground has provided
a focal point,
for a creative life.
A place to look
A place of beauty
that come from knowing a place
Through this intimacy
I hope to find truth
in This Place.
