Poem -

~ MOUNTAIN ~

~ MOUNTAIN ~

Between the darkness in the day
And the daylight within evening's shadow
Stands a testament
To times most glorious representative
The firmament's warehouse
Throughout the millennia...

Once, a bump on the ocean's floor
Then, with the power of time and Earth Changes
It is thrust into sunlight
Where it devours the eye with kisses
And life-giving waters from its shoulders
Swaying to the musical fabric of nature
Like a majestic conductor of symphonic balance
It coaxes questions
From human
Imagination...

Do you think that waiting within its DNA
Is painted the entire history of the world?
The Cosmos even?
Oh sweet master of "Intelligent Design"
If I make the climb and greet you at the pinnacle
Will you be my salvation?
My church inside?
My great divide?
My hidden potential?

Between the darkness in the day
And the daylight within evening's shadow
"MOUNTAIN"....

Hey T!  I love nature poems, and I really like how you portray the birth basically of a mountain....from many years of formation and it finally bursting forth out of oceans to impress....Our world is so beautiful.  I like the line about meeting the Creator at the pinnacle.  I definitely feel closer to God when in nature and surrounded by HIS handiwork.  I cannot believe how quickly you wrote this poem, and it is beautiful...spiritual.  I pinned it to feel that spirit again.  Love n Hugs, xo  ;)

YOU, KNOW TOO WELL WHAT HAS TO BE " SCALED " !! The " summit " of the physical, is the tribal, SPIRITUAL. Here, ancient and current civilized orders, have looked for motivations or inspirations. The quality of " THE BRAVE ", and the " worker ", is tested to the extreme....by " natural " and " supernatural " elementary OR conditional " requirements " !!! TO BE...ACCEPTED. :)
The " beast " of burden, perceived as " challenge ", drives forces influencing the soul, into a position of " panoramic " devoted foresight. Where, visions beyond, and below, match that of the " eagle, gliding on the currents " !! In the aspect, is found the " heart and soul " to answer each and every question. Through task, as well as " creative-thinking " !!! :) :)
YOU, MUST ADMIRE THAT. Must you not ? A " sight " of " your world "...from such a VANTAGE POINT. To impress and to " educate ".
Flying high, as " the eagles dare ", brings respect from peers and " fellows " of similar ilk !!! :) What a beautiful landscape to be a part of !! Do you not think ? It is in FOLLOWING " TRIBAL TRADITION ", that you find " your Nirvana "....and your " IDENTITY " !!! :) :)
Who, could want more than.....that ? It, is clear and precise in " definition " , to aid assimilation and connectivity between those of certain " ethics " !!! Those, of " frontier spirit " and those, seeking " collective responsibility. "
BRAVO. Great understanding to this.
All, the best.  :) :)

Holy Crap RICHARD!!.... this is one of the most, NO, THE MOST insightful and illuminating comment ever!!..... It sounds as if you are trying to teach me something about being "BEYOND'  the rest of 'normal' perception and accepted parameters of understanding about the world around us... of which I am EXTREMELY interested in learning about and have been pursuing, at times, with such vigorous intent that I have damaged some of my inter-personal relationships in their pursuit.......I thank you sincerely for recognizing that in me and for giving me another brick in the wall of, what I believe, to be my calling in this life...... perhaps I'll break through that wall one day and find what I'm looking for metaphysically.....I appreciate your subtle way of encouraging me my friend!!......thanx again, and may these upcoming days in your life be as enlightening for you personally.... because it seems obvious to me that there is something AMAZINGLY profound going on your life right now!!......, good luck & stay groovy brother!!...... Peace........T xo 🐧❤
