Regina Calton Burchett, member 51,261, sent us this pastel painting of the Blue Ridge Mountains and corresponding poem she wrote to accompany it. You can see more of her art on her website

I long to capture the joy, the mystery, the catch in my breath
when I come to the top of a hill
and see the mountains beyond
the trees in the mist
the breaking sky
To capture just that moment
to encapsulate it ..
the light of a firefly in a jar
