MINE

Infinite stillness
calmly you sit
aloof
watching
uncaring
my love
ignoring.

My yearning gaze
gently devours
your beauty
yet cannot
your secrets
absorb
your knowledge
acquire
your wisdom
take.

Autonomous, free
blatant envy
you inspire
impossible
possession
feigning
pretending
I dare
to call you...
mine.
Front courtyard view of my mountains.

Submitted to Friday 55. The challenge - to write something in 55 words or less.

  1. It sounds like a lover but with the mountain it could be the aloof yet beckoning aspect of nature.

    Nice poetry and in 55!

  5. Mountains, trees and the sea inspires the same feelings in me.

    To commune with nature and realise that we are also part of the same universe is an act of gratitude and wonder.

    Joy always,
    Susan

  18. I feel possessive of "my" woods behind our house...of course they don't belong to me...but certainly they are a part of me. YOUR mountains are beautiful! Thank you for your gentle spirit, for your compassionate encouraging words when you visit. I feel blessed by our budding friendship:)

  19. Sounds like a lover waiting for the love to be returned. It rang a note within me. Beautiful! Myrna you have so much beauty within and I am very lucky to be seeing it uncovered.

  20. Oh Myrna, this was just superb!!! The immenseness and stunning beauty of those gorgeous mountains can only be gazed at with admirations and awe... but whether they really "belong" to us..well.. that's really a million dollar question..isn't it? :)

    LOVED this beautiful 55, my friend..
