the life of rocks

the life of rocks

A Poem by Latifa
"

looked into the mountain and this came into my mind :p

"
Do not blame the rocks for choosing a life of stillness
one can behold and
rise silently.
no noise,
no jerking,
no tumult,
you'll wake to see me on top.
A mountain.
Casting shadows on you,
letting you float, move and fly
blessing you to dance with me
and around me,
sheltering you.
that's the sacrifice I've made
my voice chosed the caves of depth to echo
I roar within and rise
silently.
So do not blame the rocks for choosing
the
 life
of
stillness
it's her stillness that's keeping us
centered.

Conversations with mountains suits you fine. You speak like the gods in the most glorious ways.

Love you baby!

Nature can bring out the best in a poet. The imagery is wonderful. There are some people who you meet that are like those rocks.

There is power in stillness. In choosing quiet over the cacophony of the world around us. A wonderful poem

Nature can be both amazing in its beauty and in its ability to teach.
This is a beautiful poem that gives us a much needed lesson about life.
It's eye opening about our center, our balance and the importance of
the things we take for granted.

Very good poem, Latifa. There has to be a point of stillness in our lifes, a point where we can concentrate on. The rock is a good metaphor for it. Well done. :) Rudi
