Majestic Mountains

Rating: 4.8
The mountains rise above me…
Whenever do they not?
If I went climbing every one
And carved my name in every top,
Would the mountains know their master?
Would they bow or sing my name?
Would they crumble to the ocean in grief?
Or would they care,
No, they wouldn’t care, or grieve,
Or try to shake me off in anger.
Only sit their patient as God
Waiting for me to tire and come down;
So they could be taller again,
The arrogant bastards.

A grappling hook securely placed allowing your reader to rappel across part of the human psyche. Majestic.

i feel small when surrounded by mountains, , but as Rocco says, , there is a lot of balance in nature, , good nature poetry with a difference

another amazing thought, love how you seem to put a lot of emphasis on the balance of nature, and how it always seems to fit back into place (or at least that's the vibe i'm picking up) please keep writing

I had voted this a 9. But on further consideration, I went back and gave it a 10. The philosophy here, just does not end. GW62
