Mountains July 21, 2008

They seem to be looming;
Staring down at me;
Trying to intimidate;
But yet so beautiful; yet so free.

Their white capped tops glimmer;
In the sunlight and the stars;
And although I know there’s no way;
It seems they may be touching Mars.

The bases wide, the bases long;
Are only the beginning of a journey so hard;
I climb and I climb and as I near the top;
I see an army; waiting to charge.

But this army is different;
This army is trees;
This army will fight;
Will fight through the breeze.
This beautiful mountain has so much to show;
About what we’re doing, when we pollute the air;
Or use too much water, don’t leave much to share;
This beautiful mountain has taught me so much;
That if we don’t stand in it’s way, it’s willing to reach out and touch.
To reach out and touch us in such a different way;
A different way we won’t ever experience;
If we don’t leave it alone, let it be on it’s own;
If we don’t respect the beautiful mountain;
That feeling will never be known.

i wrote this after being in colorado. ahh, i miss it.

You know, the idea for a blog came to me on a whim. I was sitting around waiting for my dad to get off the phone with his business partner so we could go to the coffee house downtown. My aunt, psychmamma.wordpress.com, has been blogging a lot lately, mainly on motherhood. I never thought it would be my thing, but i guess i don’t really get to vent on myspace much. This blog will be weird, a hodgepodge¬†of poetry (which I write a lot of), my thoughts on random stuff, and events in my life. Bear with me while i bare all, yes?
