Mountain Dance

 

Soft white kisses from above

flirt with the mountain below

sending love letter shadows

to dance down its slopes

 

 

But when blue sky is banished

and electric air excites

only then is the mountain tempted

to take up the dance

For it requires a heavy hand

to stir strong stone

enfolding sharp edges

in shimmering dark skirts

 

 

While rumbles from above

awaken a deep ache

the mountain smiles

as clouds swirl

And when twilight endears

the lovers depart

under the sterling gaze

of a setting star
