Mountains

Standard

when the mountain
stands in the distance
marvelous edges
carve blue
endless foundations
as forests dapple
its sloping face
lined with waterfalls
finding hidden
crevices to pour
their contents of
winter’s melt
feeding entire
grasslands below
where fields
are tilled
year round
for their
bounties provide
food and housing
as that person
enjoys the many
sights around

Mountains

Standard

jagged its peaks
traveling for miles
thin or expansive
they traverse land
blocking its flatlands
rugged formations
basalt and obsidian
frame its edges
as flora and fauna
fill in its gaps
wondrous views
distance provides
within its surroundings
lost in a maze
of trees, grasses and flowers
sheltering animals
living there
without direction
there is no way out
though your host
the mountain
always provides
