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 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.

Capturing the Moment — Cat In Mountain Cabin Window   1 comment

Cat In Mountain Cabin Window

Embraced by the morning sun
The cat sits in the window
Watching our every move as
We walk near the small cabin.

Appearing to be along,
She oversees the bird feeder
Mounted outside the window,
A sentry or a predator?

Capturing the Word — Foreplay In The Mountains   2 comments

Foreplay in the Mountains

Living at the edge of the mountains
Watching the clouds push up the slopes
Tangling with the peeks, leaving behind
The milk of its firm, but gentle strokes

So stimulating is the foreplay
The setting sun directs its light
Reflecting off nature’s dramatic act
Fondling each to a new height

I watch, as a distant voyeur
Yet trying to sneak a feel
In the role of a mountain man
Without going against her will

In a moment, the thrill is gone
With the setting sun’s brightness
The clouds losing its excitement
Hastened by the shadows of darkness

Now alone at the mountain’s edge
I dream of stroking the night’s way
Bringing on the demons of darkness
Desiring only to stimulate the play
