This volcano named Tsengel Hairhan means "delight holy mountain" in Mongolian. As I looked at pictures of beautiful world around the Altai Mountains I thought of the Pinnacles Of Indian Fort Mountain. These are beautiful mountains in Berea, Kentucky where we hiked as children. This picture was taken just before my brother was diagnosed with leukemia in 1978. It’s not a great shot but it is full of wonderful memories.

Here is a video I found that will take you on a sweat free trip through some of the beauty to be found at Indian .Fort

After reading Cor van den Heuve's poetry I had a hard time choosing favorites. I choose the poems above for how they capture the simplicity of everyday life and wrap it in beauty. All yesterday evening I thought about ordinary things and finding that spark of interest. So today, I have been on a roll and written over 30 poems, mostly haiku. ( Don’t worry Hamish I will not post them all here, besides I don't want to be in competition with Cor van den Heuvel's wonderful poems.)
