~ Universe on a Palm ~

Loch Ossian Dawn
Originally uploaded by Duncan_Smith

Have you ever touched?
A morning wind
That embraces skylights
It was brushes of dawn
That called for the sun
Yet it was previous dark night
Pleaded for the light
And the plea of the universe
Has to be answered
It was just a faithful pray
That can’t rise unheard

Have you ever watched?
The mountains
The shoulder of the sun
Weighing first strikes of heat
Then carrying gentle rays
Towards distance parts of earth
In all the carried aches and pains
It can only be:
Courage’s mountains
And if few stones crumbles down
Know it’s a trifling tear
For all the weights that had been carried

Sometimes the weight of the world does seem an impossible burden doesn't it? But the each day we have the sunrise to refesh and reclaim us.

Majestic words you write.

Your poem reminds me of some words to a song (I think the song was called In the Land of Odin):
"Once every thousand years a little bird comes winging, sharpens his beak on that mountain, then quickly flys away"

It was to demonstrate forever

"courage's mountains"
Oh I like that phrase and your title like holding the "universe in the palm of your hand."
Your poetry is strong and true. Nature holds our world in ways more powerful than mere humans.
