in the shadow of a mountain

in the shadow of a mountain
in a brilliant patch of green
where the sky touches the ground
and the world is at peace


in the shadow of a mountain
where the air is easy to breathe
near a path of graveled rocks
the landscape is serene


in the shadow of a mountain
where the birds always sing
time moves a little slower
and  forever can be seen

in the shadow of a mountain
is where he rests in peace
flags wave with pride
in a gentle blowing breeze


in the shadow of a mountain
in the mesa view cemetery
his name is carved in granite
for all eternity

I love your poetry! This one seems to be a heartfelt, gentle wish. I feel the peace, smell the fresh air, and see the mountain.

Beautifully written and filled with love... time seems to stand still at the foot of the mesa, doesn't it. Wish we could go back. ♥

thanks for taking the time to read and comment

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
