In a distant cleft
In that shadow region
Too steep
Even for mountain sheep
That’s where I now mentally wonder
Where I wander
Deep beneath the glacial flow
Where many an age ago
Some thin-skinned tropic beast
Perished in the slow advancing snow
Now the sculpted peaks surround
Like tomb markers that sky
Overlie that time so long gone by
And the valley copse of shrubbery
The boulders from one of which I spy
This awesome grandeur
Blithely push and weigh
A virgin landscape’s hopeful, bright new day

    I really like the involvement of time, here...and then seeing it as timeless, as well. Clever!

    You've got me wandering and wondering with you here Daver; I'll get Mikkie to check out the nearer of our neighbouring crags L O L)) and I'll let you know I there's anything similar out there!!

    A beautiful scene, Daver! Feels quiet and serene, I suppose the most accessible way there, would be by way of the mind.:) We are not "mountain sheep...too steep" anyhow, but this feels to be a bird's eye view. Best wishes! Love, Mikki
