A Mountain's Roots

A Mountain's Roots

A Poem by Ezekiel Silver
"

Year poem was written: 2013

"

      Rock and stone buried deep beneath,

           layered over by wild soil.

      Founding the base of an untamed tower,

           overshadowing the forests glory.

 

      A rising landscape of grit and granite,

           planted like a giant tree.

      Dug under the earths bare flesh,

           upholding the palaces great weight.

 

      Constructed by nature as a grand design,

           a fortress for life and beauty.

      Not bound by water or light,

           an endurable sanctuary.

Great detail. It feels like a castle but better because its a mountain. You give the mountain a hollow soul almost like it was meant for only one thing. to protect, to bear the elements, to fight almost. I really like this poem. And at the same time it doesn't protect but wards off life also. Great poem, Keep writing!

The good description took me to a good place. I had to read the poem a few times. Each time with a different vision and thought. Nature is a talented artist. A wise person can see the beauty and strength in all things. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
