A Mountain Poem by Oscar Robles

I’m going to build a mountain
With every part of me
The base will be strong and sturdy
That of my ankles to my knees
I’ll line the mountain with beautiful trees
On each side like that of my arms
Centering stone and granite in the center
Where catastrophe may do no harm
Protecting the core and center
So that it can lie to great rest
Protecting the heart of beauty
Like that of my wide strong chest
The top will tower into the sun
Glowing marble like that of my eyes
Emitting grace and solidity
Protecting the moonlit skies
Incapable of defeat and conquer
Like that of my unattended mind
Looking up at the base of this one mountain
Search and another you will find

    I really love this poem. The mountain is
    a very majestic act of nature. Some people
    risk their lives to get to the top. Your mountain
    in this write seems very formidable. Thanks for
    sharing this write. I have a poem called Top
    of the Mountain. Please read when you have time. (Report) Reply
