The Cold Mountain

********* The Eagle mountain towers high behind the hills To let its crest exhale a fresh breeze of Spring The acid cold down here, still freezing the wings As the birds in thick trees snuggle, closely still The windborne heavy clouds, now sail eastward Slowly carrying the load of future rain, on board As grey fringed plaits herald a latent winter storm A silent float, while the weird shapes start to swarm Like a poetic reaction, nature feeds its stormy feel Gathering bitter hues of rage, for a ripe time to spill And the wind blowing its lemon bite from the north Fanning the cold sky, stirring the rain to come forth ********* From the sundown side, the crimson haze looks cold A brush of ginger purple, sweeps into the cloudy fold While the sun now, sinking beyond the darkened cloud An icy wind breaks into the airs, sends a quiver around I gather myself together, and choose a comfy nook to rest Some place for the poets eyes, to get a view, the best As too soon, the fleecy flakes from deep sky start to fall Waltzing hirther and thither, swirling like smart ballerinas
beautiful cloudy over mountain range

I am trully humbled, and too,much lucky to have such a wonderful feedback from a great poet here,. May be my style is so closer to the human feelings and directly going through into tender hearts that it looks usual. a feeling of deja vu is so normal in cases like this. Be happy and stay active, God bless my friend.

This is one of the best poems I've read today. And I see Bezma agrees with me. That is only right. Well writ.

A "cold mountain" portrayed in poetic flame words.. the admiration is felt.. the floating silence is powerfully heard.. the "acid cold" rendered in a poetic warmth.. A mighty height in sublime beauty, with the spirit of divinity! A boon and a revelation to great souls.. An amazing poetry that impresses the mind before the heart! A great surprise seeing your page adorned and illuminated, Hamid! A balm reading your wonderful poetry, POETIC FLAME! A treasured gem! Stay blessed always and happy.
