unaka mountain

white light

moves through a prism

tossing color into sky

like a million

pure water drops

dancing into

a rainbow.

In upper East Tennessee,

the Unaka mountains

were so named by

the Cherokee:


But those weathered


worn by time

wearing the brilliantly painted



reveal that “white”


quite a range.

What colors

will bend out

of the light

shining on you
