Majestic Mountains

Majestic Mountains

Living in awe
of your majestic force
Towering into the clouds
Peaks invisible
to us mere mortals
down here in the crowds
 
Capped with snow
like a jeweled crown
Befitting your regality
Your slopes draping
like royal robes
in all its formality
 
Your range stretches
miles across the horizon
Its sheer expanse intimidating
Worthy of our worship
and a need to conquer
Your existence exhilarating

Gospel Isosceles, Amaya, is hosting at D'Verse Poets
tonight and challenged us with the word Majesty
She asks us to write about something majestic
whether it is royalty or something in nature
or perhaps a person that we might hold in high esteem.

Terrain

Gorse covered mountains

Heather of purple tangled

In between craggy rocks

Just to please the eyes

Kaleidoscope of shapes and colors

Lingering memories the prize

In response to a d’Verse prompt Lillian’s Alphabet Sestet

Using letters G-H-I-J-K-L

Balance

Faces forming in the clouds
Evanescent in the billowing shroud
Colors brilliant at the end of the day
Pinks and blues give way to oranges and grey

Salty spray upon the face
Murmuring waves rolling without a trace
Windblown feathers of the hawk
Spirits of the ocean talk

Energy of the water runs deep
Crying souls succumbed to final sleep
Undulating strength of a million years
Cumulating in a sea of tears

Ancient trees stand witness to it all
Ringed with age, strong and tall
Mountains jagged and insurmountable
Standing close and almost touchable

Beauty abounds but at what cost
Take it now it will soon be lost
Reenergize the human being
This life of yours is worth living

Chakras tell the story
Where you might lose your glory
Balance life as nature does perfect
Or suffer the consequential effect

Christine Bolton
