Two Trees - Poem by Cyrus Diaz

The mountain was brilliant
Its pinnacle seems to kiss the sky
Inch by inch we crept upwards
The lofty grandeur
Under the blinding blaze
Of the sun.
The fluffy white clouds
Move lazily across the
Blue bowl of the sky.
We fought tirelessly
And fiercely against
The mountainous trail.
We feel the overflowing
Desire that swelled us
To conquer the summit
And by human consciousness
And the will to go on
To go on…
The only sound between
The world and sky
Were the soft hiss of our breath
and the pounding of our hearts
On the summit,
The great tide of air whipping.
We could see clearly
The entire city,
The busy city,
The familiar and distinctive
The school,
The church,
The parks,
The leisure spots
Were just so magnificent!
While on the other side
Not far from the
Green dense mountain,
Along the stream running full
Flowers blossoming profusely
Green grasses are richly green
The mammoth rice and cornfields,
The cattle and the farmers
Steadfastly working on the ground.
Two tress precisely modified
Urban and rural domain.
Fulfillment, fulfillment is all
That you would feel when
You reach the summit.
Watching the resting of the sun,
It was superb.
At dusk, various sublime
Lights in the city you
Would see like
Thousand dancing fireflies
Dancing around the city,
The bottle of wine was
Empty, we all felt dizzy
It's time to go down to the city
Where, we could rest
Till the evening breaks free….
