Mountains and Valleys

Mountains and Valleys; As I walk across the crowded narrow roads, Wondering if the trees are too tall Or the leaves are too green, Wondering about the animals and birds I have never seen Trails, stones and grass and leaves The red roofs and the pretty homes The monks dressed in red and yellow The...

Finally home!
