Here are the reasons why you come to the Adirondacks.
Shadows in the Mist
Lying in the Valleys of the Adirondacks
And shadows in the mist
The suns insistence to bring a brilliant new day.
Stillness in the air,
Blankets the endless forests
That shrouds the endless vacationers
Enveloped in log cabins tucked deep in the woods
Or million dollar homes perched on lakefront shorelines.
On golden pond
In these mountains
Kayaks wade through high reeds or open water.
Bring anticipation to whitewater rafters.
Campers breathe crisp clean air
The discriminate smell of evergreen,
Inert & intrinsic.
Conquest of stone & rock.
You can’t ignore the harmony between
Sun, water and wind
In this beautiful land
Ancient and prodigious.
Your mind lays at rest
Sitting between the valleys
And the shadows in the mist.
Giving up life’s frivolities
And stepping into a metaphysical realm
Of oneness with the earth
In the soothing breeze and the tepid haze at sunset.
Fast boats race across the calming waters
And you never want to leave this understanding
That is too brief and intoxicating.
Loons are the iconic sounds
That breaks the night’s silence
And tell us- we are here.
Sitting by the fireside, fueling the embers of our soul
Are moonlight and starlight
That dominate the landscape deep within us.
Completing the circle of the day.
Dawn again brings morning light
And the Valleys appear unscathed
Only inundated by the shadows in the mist.
