Written for the 10/9/13 Poetic Asides prompt “If You …”
If you could be part of a mountain,
which piece would you choose to be?
The tallest peak touching the heavens
or a towering, sheltering tree?
Maybe you’d be an often hiked trail
of many determined footprints,
or wildflowers springing up freely
in distinctly vibrant tints.
As boulders that cling to the hillside
or blankets of green in the glen,
you would fuse with its stunning splendor
if you could be part of a mountain.
