Moving Mountains

Causal permutations

in the wond’ring,

Reflections from our youth

with chiselled thought,

Experiential revelations,

pondering,

Weathered stone

reformed by drips and drops.

Mountain peaks, unreached,

from heat and brimstone,

Rigid, harsh,

impossible to scale,

Sculpted pathways,

carved from all experience,

Slippery,

deposited with shale.

Miles and miles of journey

in a heartbeat

Pounding, climbing,

carving all the while,

Etched relief,

moulding till a molehill,

Mountains moved with faith,

totemic, sulptured style.
