Monday Poem

As If About a Painting

takes many steps to top this mountain
as if Olympus
Painting Fang Zhaolin
a prickly pine’s upon one nub
as if Zeus

pagoda   house   shed
as if Many Mansions

sky  sun red  some blue
as if Noon

some on steps are climbing
as if To move

calligraphy top right
as if A thought balloon

each stone makes this mountain higher
as if  No problem    nihil est

as if
A scene of sheer improbable

as if
It’s just imagination I guess
