An interesting one!
The temperature is lower at altitude. As we go higher, temperature decreases. It is because the earth gets warm by reflected radiation from earth's surface, which weaken with height.
Maybe I shouldn't stay up and read so late at night. I think my brain may be frazzled. That almost makes sense. At any rate, enjoyed the poem and the hypothesis.
I got a kick out of this and you basic premise speaks volumes, unless that was what you were talking about. I got a kick out of this poem, and it did make me think.
Being under a ton of feathers will kill you just the same, just not as fast, but noone will be able to tell my listening. Now a ton of eyelashes is hard to picture, because one found in a salad really causes a scene. Either by the receiver, or if you did what I did and put it aside and keep eating, but the other people attending.
Sorry I am late in reviewing this, just been real slow on FanStory lately ... Just too much.
I love the imagery you present with this well written poem and felt it was not only wonderful, but so very true and this took me back to New Mexico were we hit the heights enough to delight in snowball fight (OK, Granulated iceballs) at the end of July!
The title is also accurate to the poem, but I wondered if this wasn't going to be about hot peppers. In my area, I might end up with the reputation of being the hottest guy around, but given my karma ... I have the world's two hottest; the ghost pepper and the butch T Trinidad Scorpion. Both approach legal civilian mace.
LOL Good one Lea, it made me laugh when I read your author notes. I think I am with you.....but......you go first.:)
Thanks for sharing this light and fun work....makes you think as well.
Wow, it's so good to see you posting again. Your skilled writing has been missed!
Hoping you'll write something to share with your friends here on site re: where the heck you've been!! (hugs)
Enjoyed the poem. Lots of great rhyming, well presented with complimentary artwork and color scheme. It is interesting how the mountain peeks are snow covered and places further from the sun are hotter... Hmm... I think some of life's greatest mysteries are meant not to be understood, but to inspire poetry like yours! Awesome work!
Thanks for sharing this with me.
You are right mountains are closer and they shiver. Quite good writing. It is thought provoking. It flows nicely. Shows deep thinking.
Wow! What a touching ending! This is so sweet and satisfying, and well written to boot! Bittersweet ending though, for their lives might have been very diff't if not for all those "important" things.
i think this is a great poem and a reasonable theory. You describe the temperate zones of the mountains and deserts and the contrast with the sun and the molten core. Very well written.
Only one way to be sure, give it your best and see what happens.
You might want to proofread one more time. You have a couple of words (to, birds) doubled and in one place I think a period is missing. Small stuff that some may believe is major.
Well done with your effort, Buck
