A Fall Hike On Mt. Lemmon — Image by kenne

A POEM IS A MOUNTAIN

a poem is a mountain

high above the city,

a place of contrasts,

filled with periods of

rain, snow and drought.

a poem is a mountain

filled with expressions of time,

filled with seasons

filled with life and death.

a poem is a mountain

growing old without pity

where God touches earth

bringing forth new life

changing earth’s colors.

a poem is a mountain

where rocks mark places, 

silence bringing on sound,

directing the eye

to things not seen —

only then does the 

mountain become a poem
