* I Seek A Mountain *

Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

Gazing the mountain from my windowpane
A green monument seen estranged
Sandwiched in between clouds
Echo of thunder cried aloud
At the eastern peak, where misty morning
Climbed over the cliff, scaling
Birds glided across, like rainbow rising
Spreaded their wings, streaming
Through the sheer rock faces
Leaving trails in phases
The pinnacles and crags are mouth watering
Tempted and lured climbers, a reckoning
Up above the northern peak
Zephyr marching oh so weak
Forming an adiabatic
Submontane filled with organic
At the bottom, river terraces
One of the mountain multi faces
The crystalline steep slopes
Decorated with climbing ropes
Heavenly as seen from above
A sign of a divine love
You flowed, like an Andean Amazon
Our love grown full-blown
I desire a woman
I seek a mountain

    I like this one and obviously subject matter is appealing.Not easy to find new phrases, metaphors that can be used but you've managed it very nicely. For description and form one of my oldest poems is Daybreak..have a look if you can..overall reference should be apparent. David(Report)Reply

    SWEETIE, WE, YOUR FANS, KNOW THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO LOOK FOR A WOMAN. WE JUST ASSUME THAT THEY'RE LINED UP DAILY AT YOUR DOOR, TWENTY-FOUR HOURS A DAY! EVERY PERSON WHO READS YOUR EXQUISITELY DELINEATED PORTRAIT OF WORDS WANTS TO TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH YOU, HAVE YOU BRING THEM INTO THE PRESENT MOMENT AND SHARE YOUR REACTIONS TO ALL THAT IS THERE TO BEHOLD, ABSORB AND EMBRACE. YOUR ENERGY AND INSIGHT RADIATE!(Report)Reply

    I didn't quite catch the meaning of the poem the first time but reread it. I two desire a woman my friend and I am full of fire in my bosom. like shadrach, meshach and a abendego I have become one with the fire and am like the eternal flame of the burning bush. The allegory of a mountain to a woman is deep because I usually relate a mountain to government but the bible in revelations uses a woman when it refers to the whore on many waters. I am going to use some of those verses in a piece of mine(Report)Reply

    wow
    what a comparison
    mountain to woman
    but dear sulaiman
    one must always remember the words of God
    'Can a man take fire to his bosom
    and his garments not burned?
    or can a man walk on live coals
    and his feet not be scorched?
    So with him who goes in to his neighbour's wife--
    none who touches her shall go unpunished.'
    good poem but somehow
    I thought of reminding you about 'mountain -woman'
    surely a 10+++
    love anjali(Report)Reply
