Road to the mountains

Road to the mountains

A Poem by B.J
"

Most mountain ranges in Australia have a tinge of blue about them.

"
Almost heaven among the mountains
Time stand still here, time is older than the oceans
The eucalypt's stand tall


All roads leads to the ranges
Home to the country where time is still
To the place where my heart is
I belong to the mountains
All road lead home

Fill your heart with memories
They gather your soul, bind it to your heart
All my desires and needs are met
Dark and dusty sand fills your lungs
Painting the sky, behind you
The taste of creek water so fresh from the rocks
Leaves teardrops on your soul

To where the mountain are blue
Where the haze hangs low
The earth laden with minerals
The tree are dated back past the millennium
Almost heaven among the mountains
Time stand still here, time is older than the oceans
The eucalypt's stand tall

Mountains cry in the morning as I wake
Crackle of the morning air, divide the light
Between the clouds, crackle of the radio
Walking the roads, that God walked, before me
Remind me where was I yesterday
When the mountains needed me
To where the mountain are blue
Where the haze hangs low
The earth laden with minerals
The tree are dated back past the millennium
Almost heaven among the mountains
Time stand still here, time is older than the oceans
The eucalypt's stand tall


Take me to the mountains are blue
Where the haze hangs low
To where the ranges meet the sky
And the stars gather and glisten
Reach up gather a star in your hand and feel
God in your heart

This brings back memories of the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas where I lived for years. I moved to be by family after losing my spouse, but I still wish I could be viewing those awesome sights instead of this flatland. Valentine

nothing like the mountains no matter where one finds them ... i live in the Ozarks of Arkansas, not far from the Blue Ridge Mountains with that same blue haze seen from a distance ...also reminds me right away of John Denver's song .. (he sure sang pretty didn't he)
