Frosty Mountain Dreams

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


In silence, frost blankets

the dotted green landscape,

tall pines like sentinels,

hold the winding road close,

careful not to shake away that frosty sleep

from pine needle eyes.

Boxes, here and there,

with windows white, buried,

with silken blue smoke spires,

drifting into tree top light,

while scurry, scratch and nuzzle toys,

adrift in morning's promise,

search for food with one eye wandering.

As shards enter forest nooks,

alert and weary eyes emerge,

from branch and burrow,

stretching, chirping, greeting

day and life.

Thoughts descend on earthy ground,

colour mix and texture grit,

to forage unseen, home secure,

and swooping feathered creatures,

playful joy and games begin,

the warmth of morning driven.

The mountain stands unmoved,

capped and pristine,

its shadow like protective arms,

embraces world and dreams,

and all pay homage to the orb,

the giver.

This is breathtakingly beautiful. I read it, then I read it again out loud, so as to hear every syllable and taste the nuances of the words.

And I echo CM. "Beautiful landscaping with words." Sharing.
