Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Mountain of Determination

Mountain of determination
Stands tall
Rock-like is the resolve
Fresh snow
Like clarity of thoughts
Gathers on the top
Hardens into ice
Temperature changes
Unpredictable as ever
Thaw exposed surface
Melting water seeps down
Gathering into a stream
Source of the great
River of life
... or an avalanche of lost hope.

    dear poet. i am honored. and thanks for sharing and appreciation.
    determination is based on life. there are always changes in life. or life is there to be changed every moment. thus life should propagate. whether hope is brighten or dim. or hope is lost in a phase of change. but there is life and there will be hope again.
    very nice poem with hard work. (Report) Reply

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
