This poem has many layers... I am very moved by your observations. I've probably seen that mountain [I was once a stewardess living in Burlingame]. We all are as grains of sand and together we form God's beach.

Though beautifully concise, the vivid imagery speaks volumes. Excellent rendering of man's minute position in God's Timelessness.

I read some of your poems...not only are they well written, they are also well- thought! It seems like in each poems, you reflect deeply on things and circumstances you encounter. Each of us have our own unique interpretations about poems. I hope my interpretation hits your own even a little. The mountain speaks... it has spoken to you during your quiet times. As you gazed at the mountain's beauty, you began to think of your worth, your existence. At the end, you realized again that you are a mere speck of sand in the world... you may be insignificant to others but still, you are important to others no matter how few they are. I believe that God uses things and people to help and talk to us. Just think of how he used Mt. Talapaise to connect with you... By the way, thanks for your comment. God bless and take care.

Dear Mr.James B.Earley It is very refreshing to read your cute poems. I think Mnt. Talapaise is really influencing your verses with her beauty and magnanimity. I read some of of your poems they are great. For your kind information I do not feel I am matured enough to write comments about your poems as my exprience is English literature is very minimal, I studied commerce and Law both subjects drains away one's artistic talents. So here I am posting my poems inroder to tease all of you. Greetings Satheesan rangorath

You speak like the father of our fathers, wise and grand but always at level. Written in such a way that one can hear your voice like a sunset coming up behind the mountain. My native lakota blood touched base here for a moment. Thank you.

A very original thought-the reflections of a mountain which has been here before man and will be after. A good read. Kate
