A Mountain, Unfinished   Leave a comment

Inspired by the barren beauty of Death Valley, where past and future ancestors convene

A Mountain, Unfinished

Bare, downbeat gullies scribble haphazard stories dabbled rough in gold and gray
Your pedigreed bedrock rusting, crumbling under pressure-wash of mundane wind and rain.
Tilted off your axis, your labored lifetimes slip, their angles too steep
Jumbled debris slides to your feet jarring memories so faint, held tight, of warm and shallow seas.
And now intrusions! From dark-broken depths
Melt long edges of your grand mantled heart ready to gleam their crystalled beams
But not till you bring them to light.
One more aching uplift . . .
        Unhiding the past, you inch up to the sky
