The Jagged Mountains  

The jagged mountains
reach for the mighty sky,
pinnacles touching clouds,
fresh spring snow covers
them lightly as a reminder
that the change of seasons
is obstinate and does not 
want to give up its ownership
of the land during its transition.

A lake nearby is a camera of nature,
reflecting the picture of what is above,
a scene of tranquility capturing a home
at the base of the granite mountain
which is a buffer from the howling
winds of mother nature who enjoys
intimidating all who are in her angry path,
a challenging game of survival on who will
withstand her constant windswept breath.

Beauty of the scene is emphasized by
contrasting colors which are so vivid in the 
eye of the beholder with the brilliance of
the mighty solar queen of light creating
a kaleidoscope upon a stage shared as 
a dream for the visitor who enters
carefully so thoughts will not be interrupted 
and will be able to visualize the placid
continuance of this ethereal existence.
