CAME A COLD MOUNTAIN

Quietly now, 
my serenading sky 
you to me are!
almost radiant and high, facing the light
be about your plants of green 
your strewn paths and needles
let rays tend the weeds that harbour gainst your hand 
and trowel deep each foot that steps
they live as do I 
mountains waiting ire 
I watch and yearn the uprooting 
the dislocation,  the cast away,
each fibre stretched against the cotton 
and the curl of sweat 
separates...
Ventures a rivulet down your back, 
you are the mystery my love
Knelt neath the shading of time
bowed, from the unforgiving branch, 
how do I see you so
a dance 
to the music in my heart 
a dance 
that wealds the tilling grasp, 
the pain I feel , is white peaks screaming
curling to kiss the clouds 
each bead pours from your diamonds stream
and settles on the rock
catching sunlight on your nape, 
a nape I've kissed a thousand times 
I live a'neath the bowing branch, 
allowed my wallow time
in shadows looking down
timeless tunes a humming 
little inconsequential notions 
swept back, brushed away
a remembered time when ledges cowered,
in rockbeds so dry of love
like strangled flowers 
that grow untended, like lies
reflecting summer sunsets under the
mountains of your  
unforgiving eyes...

    Beautiful poetry about reminiscing with lovely rhythm and imagery... like how it disentangles before actually falling in too much.

    I like this and especially how you summed up the meaning at the end, 'mountains of your unforgiving eyes.' Thank you, Kai
