The Green Mountain الجبــل الأخضـر

Keeping the spirit of the color green going on as inspired by Russell Ragsdale and Gulnaz.

~ I dedicate this following poem to Gulnaz ~

The Green Mountain الجبــل الأخضـر
I can see a green mountain so far from me
Greener as I had never seen
Yet its greatness and its beauty
Does not stop on its color
Nor on its amazing height
It clasps running water
Yet its free river that falls in what we call waterfalls
Over this image I capture it in my soul
The image linger carrying a misty breeze
That touches me lovingly it makes me aware
Reminding me
If I falter, I’m touched with love in unknown distance
With loving breeze I will be carried to stand on my feet again

As we journey on life
The falls that we run into are merely hiccups
A temporarily pits that we splash into
Sooner enough we proceed to our ordained path

Most "pits" are temporary. "This too shall pass" is a brief way of phrasing about half of human wisdom.

Some pits are not temporary - or you could say that they are as temporary as the rest of your life.

May all your pits be much more brief and temporary than that! They usually are.

Hi Nasra,

What a beautiful poem! Yes, your ending says it all:
"sooner enough we proceed to our ordained path."

Thank you for sharing your works. Feel free to post it in the poetry
group. I'm sure it would be appreciated by everyone.

Thanks..I have to take time to read more of your words where I can recieve more wisdom and insight...
I would lik to think that pits or obsticales in life a short time phaze that I have to lear to overcome them..It all takes faith and hope and self believe

To my dear Nasra,

Oh sister, it’s not strange at all to hear from a kindred soul. I apologize for not writing you back sooner. I’ve been burning the candle on both ends here at work: 50-70 hours a week or so. I tried posting something on Poetess and it said that my account was either no longer valid or that I don’t belong to that group. Oh what surprise that was for me. I was actually wondering why it was I wasn’t getting any poetry from Poetess.

Thank you for the beautifully, positive poem. I always love hearing from you. Hope all is well on your side of the street and I can’t wait to hear from you again.

Blessings and peace abound,

A lovely poem sorry I've been slow catching up but there was lots of stuff to do, kids all needing new uniforms and my youngest is heart broken because her best friend is moving to Australia. She found this out after her birthday party. Her friend who is also heart broken held on to it all the way through so as not to spoil it for her. It's really hard for them they're only 12 and spend at least three days a week together.

Needless to say, this is a beautiful poem, Nasra! My favorite part:

"If I falter, I'm touched with love in unknown distance/With loving breeze I will be carried to stand on my feet again"

Very, very inspiring - on many levels. Keep up the great work!

Does not stop on its color
Nor on its amazing height

what we expect
to be

That through little things
will show his height
to me


o God
grant it
to me and her
