My Dear Mountains — A Poem   5 comments

Country Club Vist Drive-7815 blogRain In The Mountains: Tanuri Ridge View — Image by kenne

The above image was taken after returning from hiking on Mt. Lemmon. Our morning hike was without rain, however, upon my return from the higher elevations of the Santa Catalina’s, I could see the rain clouds adding to the over 17 inches since the beginning of the summer rainy season (the last two months) — while the Tanuri Ridge community has only received about 2 inches. I call it the good, the bad and the beautiful!

My Dear Mountains

Everyday I try to say,
To say words describing
My attraction to you.

Exploring the reasons,
The reasons why
You nurture my well-being.

Is it your dance,
The dance you perform
In and around me?

Is it the call,
The call of Echo
The voice of last words?

Is it the view,
The view
of the shadowed canyons?

Is it the chiseled outlined,
The chiseled outlined
against the Sonoran sky?

Is it the hikes,
The hikes I take
In you shadows?

Is it crown clouds,
Crown clouds
that cradle your peaks?

Is it the colors,
The colors captured
from the sunset?

Is it the blue-blackness,
The blue-blackness weighed
Against the moonlit sky?

Is it night lightning,
Night lightning
That ignites you?

Is it your past,
Your past
that holds the future?

Is it a reflection,
A reflection of my being
My self-image that I love?

Is it all things,
All things
That connect us?

Is it the answers,
The answers you share
When we are together?

Is it the why,
The why
I ask questions?

Is it my words,
The words in the questions
you repeat after me?

So many questions,
Questions only we
Can answer together.

Everyday I try,
I try to become
By being near you.

It is our being together,
Being together that
Enables my existence.

Everyday I try,
I try to say words
That echo the essence of existence.
