All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other -
Only the mountain and I.
Birds have given wings to fly, restless their nature never keeps themselves tranquil in peace, they are specially made for flying. But Mountain has a strong root to stay on the ground as the human being has its own nature to follow the ancestors and the strength to keep the strict singularity about their human root also. So, poet transmits his own idea as a man should do. If the root digged firm into the ground that could be the shelter of different birds in different time. So no sad I feel in reading this one.
Portrays a gentle relationship between the mountain and the poet. Nice calming effect to the reader. Simple and short and easy to remember and play back in your mind from time to time. I wish that it had more meaning or that I understood the real meaning that it has.
Li Po is lovelorn, but still loves life.
High Mountains Walk Elevated Heights
even when wild all
the birds have flown
alone is never alone
accompanied by clouds
in high mountains gazing
we walk elevated heights

Inspired by the poem 'Alone Looking at the Mountain' by Li Po.
It's simple but i tell you, you can write books out of this poem.
I love how its short and still engraves a vison in my mind and gets the message across so clearly.
A powerful and wonderful short write. So beautifully crafted and executed.
isolation deep deep deep within lost in the thoughts barren and frightening..
