Mile High Reflections
Expecting snow, and ski-crazed folks
And finding sophistication and politeness
That made us feel more Canadian than
We were used to; Saks Fifth Avenue
Solar panel crops, Hermes, sky scraping
Buildings that seemed sculpted to suit
The landscape and everywhere flowers
A city as lush as Victoria, on Vancouver
Island, with out-sized blossoms all over
Even though it was a dry spring and the
Creek was low, the cottonwoods just now
Beginning to blow fuzz; Pike’s Peak still
Heavy with its bounty of run-off not yet
Forth-coming; hard to imagine it would
Get greener still, this Eden-like Denver
