The Mountain


Imams offer prayers to Allah
As Minarets chant high.
Rastafarians invoke Tafari
And chant down Babylon.
Locals smoke Bang in the Siesta.
Sages chant Mantras as
Holy men speak incantations.
Christians filled with the "Holy Ghost"
Weep with joy and gladness.
Dalits are "touchable"
Anything is possible on the mountain....

Stars like diamonds ornament the sky.
Flora and fauna shelter in the moonlit escape.
Beauty is prevalent on the mountain.....
Primula Vulgaris
Iris Germanica
Viola Alba
Acacia Fania
Narcissus Poeticus Poeticus
Lamu.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A young traveller told me about his visit to Kenya, where he met a group of fellow travellers of various faiths, all gathered together in one place and in one accord, but also very impressive was the amazing flora and fauna. I thought the flora sounded nicer with their Latin names.

    Not just a beautifully written poem but also a beautiful vision you've created with your added poet's notes. How wonderful that hundreds of people, all with their own and varied beliefs can converge together in peace and harmony. Truly how the world should be. Thank you for sharing this uplifting poem!

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
