CALLING DOWN THE AVALANCHE revised

                          CALLING DOWN THE AVALANCHE

                                    Call my name
                                     Bury me in mountains
                                     As you leave

                                    Terrible splendor
                                    Ice pack this fiery splintered heart
                                    Crush these bones to match

    Such ferocity in these lines. May warmth melt the pain away. Nicely done!

    thanks Drake...surrounded by mountains it is difficult not to incorporate them into one's soul....always enjoy your insightful comments.

    This one goes "to the bone" - the(your) force of so few words.......
